Inside Castille Palace

During the reign of the Knights of Malta, between 1530 and 1798, they built many fortifications, houses and palaces, known as Auberges. The most imposing Auberge is the one known as Castille, where the Prime Minister has his official office. These are just two photos of the inside staircase, beautifully crafted, with pleasant archways, nicely painted with soft colors and a welcome attraction to any visitor to the Prime Minister, usually dignitaries and well-known people. 

The outside was just recently restored, and I will share a few photos of the imposing facade as soon as I have some good quality photos. I took these 2 photos when I visited the retired Prime Minister 3 years ago.
