The Silent City
The prominent outline of the medieval walled city of Mdina, which was for many years the capital of Malta. Its history, however, dates back at the very least to the classical period, when the whole area, including the present-day town of Rabat, formed part of a Roman settlement.

Mdina's history is very interesting and complicated so I won't dwell on it here. For anyone who is interested, excellent further information can be got at: http://www.maltassist.co.uk/mdina.htm.

Just the usual small adjustments to contrast and saturation, sharpened slightly.

Hi Bill
good sharpness and POV for this beautiful view
very nice Bill

A big smiley for this one Bill!
A good shot Bill & I have to say your POV is very well choosen
From the old medieval days this was the best way of defense.. a little town on top of a hill ..strong walls and no enemy could sneak up on you ..
Will read : maltassist.co.uk/mdina.htm. later today

Hello Bill!
It's a magnificent view of the sunlit medieval city. There are many Medinas (Downtowns) in North Africa, but none is so solemn like this one. Probably these rock hills have been witnesses of the glorious WW2 resistance...
