Locanda La Gelsomina is set in the historical heart of this magical Mediterranean isle. A quiet haven steeped in charm that is discreetly off-the-beaten track yet just a heartbeat away from key cultural, natural and historical sites.
It all started 500 years ago...
Located in a quaint lane called Triq il-Kunsill Popolari (once known as Front Street), Locanda La Gelsomina has a long history which goes back to the time of the establishment of the Order of St. John in Birgu in 1530.
Built atop one of the highest points of the peninsula, the building was constructed in the early 16th century and underwent five distinct phases of consruction over the course of the centuries.
The ancient stone walls have witnessed countless of stories and journeys, whilst the building's simple facade bears testament to its Renaissance heritage.
