What To Expect
Casa Rocca Piccola
Casa Rocca Piccola is a 16th century palace and living museum. Built over 400 years ago for Don Pietro La Rocca, a Knight of Malta, it is now the ancestral home of the de Piro family, a Maltese Noble family. The palace contains over 50 rooms, many of which are open for viewing.
The house is furnished with collections of furniture, silver and paintings from Malta and Europe. There are literally hundreds of magnificent objects to see including modern paintings interspersed with the ancestral portraits of the Marquises de Piro and the Barons of Budach.
Under Casa Rocca Piccola a network of tunnels were cut out from the rock and used in World War II as air raid shelters. Over 100 people sheltered here from the bombs that poured on Valletta.
Live guided tours in English (pre-booking recommended) or audio self-tours in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish are included with your entrance ticket.
Restrooms, a bookshop and La Giara restaurant are available on site.

A very good museum to visit
John H, 31-03-2022
Excellent museum came across it and was very impressed
Still set out very much as a home rather than a museum
Easy to get round but if you wish to see the air raid shelters
the steps are very steep but worth seeing if you can
Something outside of the standard Tours
A fascinating old house in the middle of the city. The tour guide has a lot to work with given the history of the home. If you’ve taken the major tours of Valletta. This would be a good addition to your itinerary.
