Casa Rocca Piccola
A truly unique attraction in the heart of Valletta, Casa Rocca Piccola is a sixteenth-century palace & a much-loved family home. A visit to this architectural masterpiece offers an intriguing glimpse into the lives of the Maltese nobility! Built in 1580, the Palace was one of the first noble houses in the City of Valletta and was originally called ‘Casa del Giardino’, as it was one of the only houses in Valletta permitted to have a garden. Whilst still lived in today by descendants of its original aristocratic owner, its lavish rooms hold some of the finest furniture, silver, and paintings preserved over the past 400 years. Though the palace itself is enough to leave one truly amazed, by far the most mysterious attraction it has to offer is its network of tunnels dating back to World War ll.
