Raba tis a town in the Northern Region of Malta, with a population of 11,497 as of March 2014. The name of the town is derived from the Arabic word for 'suburb' as it was the suburb of the old capital Mdina.
Steeped in heritage, Rabat is home to the famous Catacombs of St. Pauland of St. Agatha. These catacombs were used in Roman times to bury the dead as, according to Roman culture, it was unhygienic to bury the dead in the city Mdina and parts of Rabat were built on top of an ancient Roman city. The Maltese Catacombs were never meant to be hiding places during persecutions or as living quarters. In fact, historians believe that Rabat hides a city of underground dwellings and tunnels, many of which have never been discovered.
The Catacombs of St. Paulare now looked after by Heritage Malta. Part of St. Paul's Catacombs, the part accessible from the Parish church which is dedicated to the same Saint, was where, according totraditionand as recorded in the Bible, St. Paul stayed for three months when he was shipwrecked on the island in 60 A.D.
In the Catacombs of St Agatha's, there are over 500 graves of several types, the majority being for children. There are sections for Pagans and Jews, as well as for Christians. There are also unique Frescos. Another interesting feature in the Maltese Catacombs is the Agape Table.
Rabat is also the home of the famous 'pastizzeria' called is-Serkin. Well known to locals, is-Serkin serves the local traditional pea and cheese cakes together with innovative creations and variations of these local delicacies.
