A historic Palazzo in Wardija.
The historic unconverted palazzo `Gherxija` in Wardija, is a magnificent and grand property that exudes a sense of traditional elegance and luxury. The palazzo was built in the early 13th century in the traditional Mediterranean style and features stunning stonework and architectural details that are characteristic of the period in which it was built. In the early 16th century the palazzo was restored by Garzia Mompalao into a small Palazzo with bastion walls. The property still retains most of its original and historical features. The property is spread over several levels, with spacious and airy rooms that offer plenty of natural light and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Once renovated the interior of the palazzo with its high ceilings will give the space a sense of grandeur and opulence. Outside, the palazzo boasts a large garden that is perfect for entertaining guests or enjoying a quiet evening under the stars. Besides the main building, the property includes a Chapel, a car shed, a swimming pool, a garden, and several outbuildings that were used as stables, farm rooms, and extensive cultivated fields. The property has enormous potential for conversion into a luxurious private residence or boutique hotel, with plenty of space for additional bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas. With its rich history, elegant architecture, and breathtaking views, the historic unconverted palazzo in Wardija, is a truly unique and desirable property that is sure to impress even the most discerning buyer. Awaiting permits (to be issued in the next three months) for conversion and renovation.


Wardija is a hamlet in St. Paul's Bay, Malta. Its name is corrupted from the Sicilian or Italian word guardia, meaning 'to watch'. Although the name of the hamlet has Arabic lexicons, it was probably named later when Maltese, then an Arabic dialect, remained a dominant language. The hamlet is bordered byth Bidnija, Bugibba, San Martin and Pwales. Several archeological remains are found in the whereabouts, proving that it was inhabited in pre-history and the Roman period, and it has always been mainly a rural village.

A number of knights and noble families built their country residences, originally to be used for hunting and retreats. A number of 19th and 20th-century structures were also erected in the area. Some houses are still owned by the descendants of the original builders, while others are now used for multiple purposes such as private homes, commercial accommodations, events, and weddings receptions.
