The Greek Gate is recognised as the second most important entrance to Mdina and was built during the medieval period.

Its location near St Nicholas Chapel in Malta has led to speculation that a large Greek community was living there at the time.

The restoration and preservation division expect that works will be completed by November and will safeguard Mdina’s history.
