Mdina, Mosta & Crafts Tour

This tour includes some of central Malta's highlights and our first stop includes a visit to the town of Mosta. Dominating the central piazza is the Rotunda church, more commonly known as Mosta Dome . It is probably the most famous church in Malta, mainly because of it's large dome which is the fourth largest unsupported dome in Europe. For many visitors the most fascinating feature of this church was the World War II incident when during an air raid a bomb pierced the dome and fell inside the church during a service which was attended by 300 locals, but the bomb failed to explode and this the locals hailed as a miracle. You can visit the sacristy which displays the events and houses a replica of the bomb.

Our next stop is the Ta'Qali Village. Ta'Qali was once the British RAF base in central Malta, this old air field is now home to our National Football Stadium, a National park, conventions centre and Crafts Village which houses an array of artisans. Here we can view the local crafts and it is also the ideal place to purchase some gifts from a good selection of locally made pottery and ceramics, filigree and jewellery, cane works, stone and much more. Do not miss out on the glassblowers decorative glass made in the traditional manner by hand and mouth; also etching and crystal cutting.

Our final visit is to the medieval city of Mdina. Mdina is built on a plateau in the centre of the island, the city's old Baroque buildings, Cathedral and magnificent bastion walls dominate the rural skyline. Mdina, once the capital of Malta until the modern city of Valletta was built had many names including Melite (Roman occupation), Medina (Arabic occupation), Citta Notabile (Knights of St. John) and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today it is also referred to as the Silent City since it inspires tranquility at any time of the day or night. The only way to really experience and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from the high bastion walls.

At this stage our tour comes to an end and we make our way back.
