Very beautiful touristic attraction. This is a beautiful entrance to the city where also Game of Thrones was filmed for kings landing in the first seasons. It is also worth visiting in the evening. There are no cars which makes the experience even better.
A must visit when you're in Malta! Bring your best outfits - this place is totally instagrammable. It's so beautiful and historic - just wander around. You won't need the whole day for Mdina if you're not visiting any museums or churches here. Totally recommend coming by! Easily accessible by bus.
