The Dragonara Palace

Situated on the tip of the ‘Tad-Dragun’ promontory in St Julian’s the Dragonara Palace is one of Malta’s most extraordinary and imposing private properties built in the classical style almost as a grand romantic folly. Built in 1870 as the summer residence of the Marquis Scicluna the Dragonara Palace opened as Malta’s first Casino in 1964. The Dragonara Casino was one of the first major projects to establish Malta as a prime tourist destination.

The Casino is housed in a magnificent 19th-century seaboard summer palace, built by the Marquis Scicluna, with a surrounding colonnaded veranda that abuts directly onto the sea. It retains many of the original architectural and interior design features, which have been successfully adapted to the requirements of casino patrons.

Now with over 50 years of operation, the Dragonara Casino is managed by Dragonara Gaming Limited; the leading land based gaming operator in Malta. Since taking over the Dragonara Casino in July 2010, Dragonara Gaming Limited has transformed and restored the Casino into one of the most prestigious Gaming properties in the Mediterranean. Approximately 350,000 patrons visit the Casino each year making the Dragonara the foremost Casino in Malta.
