Magazine Street in Mdina can be accessed directly from the ditch around this fortified city from an entrance known as "the hole in the wall". This entrance was built when Malta's steam railway was in operation. It essentially allowed an easier access to the nearby railway station.
South west of Mdina, not far from Magazine Street is the Greek Gate. This gate is an atmospheric tunnel vault cut into the city's south walls. It named after the small colony of Greeks who lived in the area in the 16th and 17th centuries.
