The Xara Palace is located within the city walls of the so-called 'Silent City' of Mdina. Mdina's monuments, museums and Roman villas are just a stone's throw away. Around Mdina, you can explore the beautiful Maltese countryside. As a matter of fact, if you'd also like to visit the capital Valletta, you're only a fifteen-minute drive away from there too.
Malta's airport is 12 kilometres away.
A transfer from the airport to the hotel costs 40 euros per journey.
There is a public car park nearby.
This 17th-century palazzo is intricately linked to the medieval city of Mdina, whose walls form part of the bastion walls surrounding Malta's former capital, with its remarkable Baroque architecture. All rooms are individually designed with a romantic décor, original paintings, antique tapestries and furniture. They evoke the noble origins of the Xara Palace and offer spectacular 180-degree panoramic views of Malta. Savour the attentive service and gastronomic delights at the awarded restaurant the Mondion, or dine at Trattoria A.D. 1530, located on the charming piazza.
