The Inquisitor’s Palace

The Inquisitor’s Palace is one of the very few surviving buildings of its kind, a most valuable religious powerhouse which housed the Holy Roman Inquisition for 224 years.  It was built in phases, starting in the 1530s when architect Niccolò Flavari adapted Medieval dwellings to house the Law Courts of the Order. At the Inquisitor’s Palace one finds a collection on display that portrays the salient aspects of Malta’s urban religious culture focusing particularly on the early modern period and the impact of the Inquisition on Maltese societies through the centuries.
