Palazzo Parisio – Visit to a noble house

If you are exploring Malta, and you are looking for some really nice places to visit, Palazzo Parisio may be the right thing to see. It is an old noble museum house dating from 1733. It was built by Grand Master Manuel de Vilhena from Portugal, and later it was passed to the Parisio family. This family used to live in Valletta, but after the invasion of Napoleon Bonaparta, they had to give their house to him, and they moved in the palace in Naxxar. In 1896 the house came into the possession of Scicluna family.

Today it is a museum, and everyone can visit it for 7 euros. There is a shop, restaurant, cafe and a wonderful garden. It is also used for weddings and similar ceremonies.

Please follow me on a picture tour around Palazzo Parisio.

The Red room / Sala Lombarda

For me this was the most interesting room. It was all red with a lot of paintings around. There are some paintings of the Maltese artist Francesco Zahra, and the rest are from some Italian painter.

This golden room was designed in honor of the order of St John, and it has amazing details. On the ceiling there are symbols of astrology, science, music poetry and so. The chandeliers are made of bronze.

The garden is very long and it is overlooking the coast of St. Paul Bay. It is a mixture of Mediterranean colours and Italian symmetry.
