The Norman House, formerly known as Palazzo Falzon was built at the end of the 15th century in the Siculo-Norman style by the Aragonese Vice-Admiral Falzon.
Although the Norman House is of a much later period than the Palazzo Santa Sofia (1233) nearby, the string course is identical and the decorated double windows are magnificent. Their only equivalents are said to be found only in Sicily and Southern Italy.
This is the palace where Grand Master L'Isle-Adam was received and stayed two days after his ceremonial reception and state entry into Mdina in 1530.
The Norman House contains paintings of well-known masters, glass and silver, plate, pharmacy jars, furniture and a collection of Maltese silver and gold objects, as well as a Library of extensive "Melitensia".
During the Second World War a stray bomb damaged the courtyard of the Norman House, but this was subsequently restored.
