Our Offices

Our office is in a 16th Century Palazzo within the heart of Valletta, Malta’s capital. Valletta was designated the European Capital of Culture in 2018.

Valletta was built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, also known as the Knights Hospitaller. The city of Valletta was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980. The fortified capital dates back to the 16th Century and is well known for its Baroque architecture but also features elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical and Modern architecture in some areas.
