Fodor's Expert Review Grand Masters' Palace

Valletta Government Building

The palace houses the president's office; Malta's parliament meets here until the new parliament building is completed. The palace, completed in 1574, has a unique collection of Gobelin tapestries; the main hall is decorated with frescoes depicting the history of the Knights and the Great Siege. On view are works by Ribera, Van Loo, and Batoni. At the back of the building is the Armoury of the Knights, with exhibits of arms and armor through the ages.
