I have written in detail about Verdala Palace and the ghost of the Blue Lady that purportedly haunts it in Castle of my Dreams. This castle, the official summer residence of Malta’s President, is rarely open to the public. On those occasions when it is, I find it quite a treat to walk in the footsteps of Knights, Governors, Presidents and even Kings and Queens. The architectural masterpiece of this castle is the main staircase. Verdala Palace boasts magnificent grounds, a small chapel decorated with paintings by Mattia Preti and a wonderful, uninterrupted view of the surrounding little wood and countryside.
