One of several elegant buildings that stand on St Paul's Cathedral Square in Mdina, Malta.
I have been unable to find out the name of the building or anything about its history. Apologies for the parked cars, but they were there on several occasions when I visited the square and was unable to avoid them.

Very beautiful building!
l like it! It looks like a little palace.
Don't worry about the cars, thanks for sharing this pic.

the cars aren`t really a distraction,just part of modern life I guess and the charm and warmth of the old building more than makes up for any intrusion.
I particularly like the lone plant.

this is a superb building. Judging from its style and closeness to the cathedral, it might be a rectory. The details of the façade have been rendered with great sharpness and are very interesting. The colors are bold and bright and don't allow our attention be captured by the cars. I also like the mild shadows and am intrigued by the open window. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

it looks like an old and beautiful building is at every turn in this wonderful Maltese city. This is a stunning and gloriously maintained piece of architectural heritage. Shame they let cars into this old city, unless these are for disabled visitors.

J'aime beaucoup cette maison. A mi chemin entre l'église et la maison. Une superbe architecture très élaborée sous une lumière magique qui fait tout ressortir.

Les voitures aident au cadrage de la maison. La prise de vue permet de voir avec précision les détails de l'architecture de la maison. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

Beautiful ornamentation and detail onto his small building, I wond if this is some bodies house? A very fine place. And you got it under perfect light to bring out all the detail, particularly in that crest. The color is beautiful too.

mi piace molto questa architettura, sono molto belle le linee della facciata, soprattutto i due terrazzi laterali a forma di calice, una vera meraviglia.

You show here a beautiful architecture. I really like this façade. Perhaps a mixture of Gothic with other styles.

Fine capture of this beautiful building. They sure have a spectacular heritage of architecture. Well seen.

Excellent view up to beautiful cathedral, superb light, fabulous detail. The window reflections are outstanding. I'm always angry when I see cars in front of such architectural beauty, but in this case the cars add nice contrast to this superb photo.

Un peu de distorsion! mais une beauté architectural de Mdina, bien présenter sous une belle lumière qui permet d'apprécier les moindres détails, très jolie
Bonne nuit :-)

Interesting architecture, light and contrast are well managed, tfs.

Interior decorators say that it is important to have an odd number of art pieces on a wall, 1 or 3... but not 2. Here the three cars set off the building effectively. The brilliant sunlight of Malta, and the golden stone that characterizes it. I like this image very much,
