About – Rabat and the Iconic Maltese Stone Experience

Many have heard of Mdina, Malta’s ancient and majestic old capital city, but fewer know of it’s equally fascinating suburb town of Rabat.  During Roman times the city of Mdina encompassed most of the area that is modern day Rabat, but today Rabat has become important in its own right and has so much to offer architecturally and historically displaying the very best of Malta’s eye-catching Limestone architecture that spans several centuries.

If Malta has one valuable resource other than its creative people, it’s the beautiful limestone that is found throughout the islands in Malta’s historic buildings.  The stone is soft and easy to manipulate into intricate designs and shapes that can be seen in balconies, staircases and building facades throughout the Maltese islands and most especially in Rabat which is the ideal location to view it.  On this tour you will learn about the amazing properties of the stone and the different types of limestone found around Malta as well as how and why it is used in Malta for building its houses, churches and palaces.
