The Maltese Parliament
Proudly Hosting the UNSC, DISEC and ECOFIN Committees
Malta’s new Parliament building stands right beside the recently completed City Gate, the entrance to the Maltese capital city, Valletta. The construction was designed to comfortably integrate with the surrounding bastions on the periphery of the city, with tall, limestone walls combined with a sleek and modern steel design. The site once housed the Valletta Railway Station, which was later demolished and replaced by Freedom square. The proud structure that stands there today has been hailed as a feat in Maltese parliamentary history, being the first purpose-built parliament building in Malta.
The Phoenicia Hotel

Hotel Phoenicia, formerly called the Le Méridien Phoenicia, is a 5-star hotel in Floriana, Malta. The Art Deco hotel was built in 1939, and was opened in November 1947. It is regarded as one of the top hotels in Malta. The hotel had one of the earliest restaurants of good standards in Malta in the 1950s. It was built by Lord and Lady Strickland and designed by Architect William Binnie, as Malta’s premier luxury hotel to rival the standards, comfort and service of the grandest European hotels of the time.
