A 400 hundred old house renovated with hard work and dedication by the owner Charles. Worth visiting while you rome about the cobbled streets of Birgu.

While wandering the streets of Birgu, we happened upon Norman house. It's beautifully restored with spiral staircases, free to get into and gives an insight into the building in this lovely area. What a pleasant way to spend a few minutes while in stunning Birgu!

It wasn't in the guidebook. We just noticed it as we were walking by. It's worth a stop if you're in the area. A very old house, maintained by the local council. Not much in the displays, but very atmospheric.

A beautifully restored Norman House. Tucked away in a quiet backwater, off the main Square in the suburb of Birgu, Valleta. Unfortunately, it was closed. However, as we visit Malta every year, we'll be back in 2017!!!

This was a happy accidental find while wandering the streets of Birgu. There aren't a whole lot of other major attractions in Birgu, so you might as well plan to wander by it as well!
