Geocache Description:


This cache replaces the previous archived Il Foss tal-Imdina cache hidden on 03/22/2014, having 1,518 logs, 41 favorites and 298 pictures.

This cache takes you to Mdina - the old capital city of Malta. Mdina is medieval-walled and situated on a hill in the centre of the island.A fantastic view awaits you from the cache location.

Mdina was first fortified by the Phoenicians, then by the Romans, Arabs and Normans. It was identified as an ideal city far away from the sea with views of the island from above so as to look for any possible invading enemies. 

The cache is situated in the 'Il-Foss tal-Imdina', a landscaped ditch around the old capital city. A visit to this recreational area and the Howard Gardens and playgrounds above are ideal for cachers with kids. 

The ditch entry point closest to the cache are the stairs and lift at the very end of the playground.

The cache is a small plastic container including logbook and small trinkets. It is situated very close to the bus stops including the hop-on hop-off stops near Mdina.

GZ is wheelchair accessible but the cache is not.

Beware of visiting muggles.

The cache is not located in a wall so do not disturb such structures.

The opening hours of the 'Il-Foss tal-Imdina' garden are from 07:30 - 22:00.

Please upload photos with each log.
