Dingli is a village in the Northern Region of Malta, with a population of 4000. It is 13 kilometres from the capital Valletta. The village lies on a plateau some 250 metres above sea level, which is one of the highest points of Malta with views over the tiny, uninhabited isle of Filfla, nearby Buskett Gardens and Verdala Palace. The area is famous for its cliffs.The name Dingli is believed to be derived from the name of Sir Thomas Dingley, an English knight of the Order of St. John, who owned much of the lands in the surrounding area.
Rock-cut tombs dating back to Phoenician, Carthaginian and Roman times have been found. Roman baths and other remains were also found at Għajn Handful and in the area of Ta’ Baldu. A chapel built in 1669 is still standing.
The feast of the Assumption in Dingli is celebrated on the first Sunday after 15 August.
