Στα γραφικά στενάκια της Mdina και της Rabat στην Μάλτα/Wandering the picturesque streets of Mdina and Rabat in Malta

 

Η Mdina και η Rabat είναι δυο από τις πιο όμορφες πόλεις που είχα την χαρά να τριγυρίσω στην Μάλτα!

Mdina and Rabat are two of the most beautiful cities I had the chance and joy to wander in Malta!!

Για την ιστορία, οι δυο αυτές γειτονικές πόλεις αποτελούσαν ενιαία ενότητα, αλλά οι Άραβες έχτισαν τείχη γύρω από την Mdina και την έκαναν καστρόπολη! Μεσαιωνική και τρελαίνομαι σου λέω!

Some history first: the two neighboring cities were one before the Arabs decided to wall Mdina and made it a fine example of an ancient walled city! As medieval as I love it!!

Η Mdina σε ταξιδεύει πίσω στον χρόνο ενώ η Rabat έχει μεταμορφωθεί σε πιο καθημερινή πόλη. 

Mdina transports you back in time, while Rabat has a more modern touch.

 

Η ”Σιωπηλή πόλη” (η Mdina δηλαδή) είναι η αρχαία πρωτεύουσα της Μάλτας. Oι Ιππότες έφτασαν το 1530 φαντάσου!! Κατά την διάρκεια της μέρας σφύζει από τουρίστες, το βράδυ όμως ησυχάζει! Γι’αυτό και το προσωνύμιο ”Σιωπηλή πόλη”. Εδώ θα χαθείς στα σοκάκια, θα βγάλεις αμέτρητες φωτογραφίες και όταν κουραστείς θα κάτσεις για καφεδάκι και γλυκά στο Fontanella. Εγώ ξετρελάθηκα με τα Cassatella και Cherry and Almond cakes και στα προτείνω με μάτια κλειστά!! Ααα και αν είσαι φαν του Game of Thrones θα χαρείς που θα δεις από κοντά και την είσοδο του King’s Landing…..την Κεντρική πύλη της Mdina δηλαδή!!! Σιγά μην έχανα να φωτογραφηθώ μπροστά της!!

Mdina is the former capital city of Malta! You can imagine the Knights come here in 1530!! During the day it’s fully packed with tourists, but at night only the locals stay and enjoy the silence, that’s why they call Mdina ”the silent city”!! Lose yourself in the little cobblestoned streets and when you get tired, stop for coffee and sweets at Fontanella. I was drooling over the Cassatella and the cherry and almond cakes!!! And if you are a Game of Thrones fan, you’ll be excited to watch the entrance of King’s Landing….it’s the Mdina Gate! Of course I made my boyfriend to take a picture of me in front of it….haha!

 

 

Στην Rabat θα επισκεφτείς σίγουρα τις Κατακόμβες του Αγίου Παύλου που χρονολογούνται από τα πρώτα χριστιανικά χρόνια. Αξίζει πίστεψέ με παρόλο που είναι πολλές!! Ένας ατμοσφαιρικός λαβύρινθος με τάφους και στενά περάσματα. Ομολογώ ότι με κούρασαν λίγο, αλλά αποζημιώθηκα όταν είδα ότι σε κάποιες έχουν μείνει ζωγραφιές από τότε!!!! 

Μάλιστα ήμασταν στην πόλη στις 19 Μαρτίου που οι Μαλτέζοι γιορτάζουν τον Άγιο Ιωσήφ, γι’αυτό και βλέπεις την πόλη στολισμένη στις φωτογραφίες!

In Rabat, St Paul’s Catacombs are a must. They date back from the first Christian years! It’s worth it!! An atmospheric labyrinth of graves and narrow passages!! I have to say that I got a bit tired exploring all of them, but I forgot about it when I discovered some drawings from back then!! 

We were in the city on the 19th of March and on this day the Maltese have the feast of St Joseph and is a public holiday, that’s why you see Rabat decorated in the photos.

 

 

 

Τί λες;; Δεν είναι πανέμορφες;;

So, they are a beauty right??
