Casa Rocca Piccola is a 16th century palace of the Maltese Noble family built in 1580. It is a fabulous traditional old building in central Valletta with over 1000 items to see across 50 rooms, including two libraries, a chapel and three bomb shelters, the largest of which is big enough to fit 100 people inside. It has been awarded with Trip Advisor’s “Best of the Best’, Travellers Choice award for four years running since 2014.
The 430-year-old building has an abundance of attractions, including fine collections of furniture, art and silver. It is also home to Malta’s largest collection of antique costumes, and an archive room, which holds details of family records and state business from the 16th century to the present day, and is used for research purposes by the University of Oxford.
45-minute guided tours take place hourly every day, so you can get an insight into the terrific insights into the exhibits that the palace holds. The building has wheelchair access and trained guide dogs are allowed in.
