This is a VERY stately home with centuries of history. It has a library that made me wish I could live there and a very friendly parrot. There were many collections and portraits. Well worth taking a tour.

It's a traditional house of an old family of Valletta. A family member guided us through the entire house and told us its history. It's really nice but it is recommended only if you have spare time.More

It is a house of a Maltese noble family. The ticket is 9€. It is expensive but at least you get to see how a house of this style really was. If you have time and extra money, visit it.

Found this by accident, very little in guide book about it. But what a gem. Totally stunned by it all. Fabulous place, homely, interesting, fascinating. Loads of history and felt a lovely happy place. If you see nothing else - go here.

Thank you very much for your kind review! It's still pleasant as you mentioned to explore the palace with a friendly and knowledgeable guide. Hoping to see you again in our palace!

So nice to be in a house that is still lived in and with a parrot in the courtyard! How prescient was the previous Marquis who built a bomb shelter in 1936 - a further reason to visit this house.
