Urban Conservation Area in Dingli
Dingli (or Ħad-Dingli) is a small town in the west coast of Malta, 13 kilometers from the capital Valletta and two kilometers from the nearest city, Rabat. The village lies on a plateau some 250 metres above sea level, which is the highest point of Malta. The area provides not only open sea views over the tiny, uninhabited isle of Filfla, but also an excellent vantage point over Malta. From the cliffs there are views inland of nearby Buskett Gardens and Verdala Palace. The countryside here is ideal for walking. Dingli today is a quiet, rural area though in late medieval times it was one of Malta's earliest and largest parishes.
