CASTELLO DEI BARONI by sangwann

CASTELLO DEI BARONI

Last Sunday I took the car and went to Wardija. ‘Wardija’ in English means ‘The place which flowers or where flowers grow’. It is one of the poshest area of Malta with big beautiful villas. This is a shot of Castello dei Baroni. I added a selfie shot I took with my mobile which otherwise I didn’t know what to do with it.
Castello Dei Baroni is a 20th-century residence in Wardija, Malta. In the 18th-century, during the magistracy of Grand Master Emmanuel de Rohan-Polduc, a rural building was constructed on site. The Montalto family owned the whereabouts of its site in the 20th-century, and built the Castello Dei Baroni, incorporating the old structure. It was then purchased by Adrian Busietta and Maria Caruana, when it was renovated into a mock castle and given its name. It has since then mainly served as a wedding reception.
Many thanks for your views, comments and fav's.
A lovely shot of this impressive building and I like how you've put yourself looking round the edge of the shot.

such an interesting history - Malta has a long history and was first inhabited in around 5900 BC. Love for you to show the antiquity :)
