Came here on a wet day in November, the rooms gave you an idea of the wealth of this family in Malta’s history. Cute parrot too in the courtyard.

Museums generally leave me cold. I have little interest in following a line of people gazing into glass enclosures full of memorabilia and artefacts that maybe historically important but do nothing for me at all. However if you visit this historic Casa and take the...More

Only guided tours. Lots of small rooms. Lots of indifferent paintings. Loved the courtyard and the bird. Cellars deeper than I expected

Dear Reviewer, Thanks for the review. Yes, the Bomb Shelters are very deep and provided shelter for 100's of people in the Second World War. Glad you liked the courtyard and Kiku (the parrot).

This is a beautiful old house - take the tour to make the most of it as it is very informative. The family still live there and they are trying to maintain the integrity of the building for future generations to enjoy.
