The Staterooms are the show piece of the Presidential Palace sited at the heart of Malta’s World Heritage Capital city of Valletta. The Palace itself was one of the first buildings in the new city of Valletta founded by Grandmaster Jean Parisot de La Valette in 1566 a few months after the successful outcome of the Great Siege of Malta in 1565. The Palace was enlarged and developed by successive Grandmasters to serve as their official residence. Later, during the British period, it served as the Governor’s Palace and was the seat of Malta’s first constitutional parliament in 1921. The Palace today is the seat of Office of the President of the Republic and the House of Parliament. This site can occasionally be closed at short notice by order of the President.
