Korte Geschiedenis

Verdala Palace was the official Summer residence of the Governors General of Malta during British rule, and is the official Summer residence of the Presidents of modern Malta.  It was built  in 1586 by Grand Master Hugues Loubenx de Verdalle (1531-1595) on the site of a hunting lodge previously owned by Grand Master Jean Parisot de Valette (1495-1568).  The grounds around the palace were often used by the Knights of Malta for game hunting.
