Casa Rocca Piccola - Malta
A true gem that most tourists miss as it is one of the last attractions in Valletta if starting off from the main entrance to the capital. Don't miss out and make sure to visit... grand palatial rooms, secret underground passageways and many historical stories to tell!
Directions to Casa Rocca Piccola
Casa Rocca Piccola is a top rated and award winning 'living museum' in Malta's capital Valletta. Even though situated just a few metres from the President's Palace, it is often missed by the unaware tourist and has earned a reputation of being Valletta's best kept secret!
The ornate palace is a privately owned 16th Century residence built for Don Pietro La Rocca, a Knight of Malta. Casa Rocca Piccola has been passed down the generations for over 400 years and is today the ancestral home of the 9th Marquis de Piro and his family.
The regal rooms have countless antique items on display, from lovely period furniture to intricate little gems and historical paintings. The knowledgeable guides will take you on a tour of twelve lavish rooms, each one with its own story to tell.
Casa Rocca Piccola also has its own little surprise and added attraction... it is home to a remarkable network of underground passages carved out over the centuries and eventually used as shelters that protected hundreds of locals throughout World War 2. An added feature that never fails to further impress visitors.
Within the palace grounds you will also find a pretty walled garden, a souvenir shop with plenty of local artisanal products and an Italian restaurant situated within the old kitchens of Casa Rocca Piccola.
Guided tours are available daily from 10.00 until 16.00 hours (closed on Sundays and Public Holidays)
