One World... Scheduling the past

Mepa schedules Palazzo Pescatore, St Paul's Bay

Palazzo Pescatore was built at the end of the 19th century and its symmetrical poticoed façades of Neo-Classical inspiration are similar to Palazzo Dragonara at St Julians.

The building is on two floors and is characterized by a verandah all around consisting of a colonnade in the Ionic order which was closed off by glass panels during the 1980s. The upper floor has a series of windows with moulded surrounds.

The villa used to be surrounded by a garden containing fountains and other embellishments, some of which are recent additions. Much of these gardens have now been re-developed. The interior was largely altered during the past decades when it was used as a night club. A Neo-classical gate with engaged Ionic columns stands at the entrance to the complex and is a landmark in its own right.
