San Anton Palace

Local nameIl-Palazz ta' Sant'Anton
LocationNaxxar, Malta

San Anton Palace is a palace in Attard, Malta that currently serves as the official residence of the President of Malta. It was originally built in the early 17th century as a country villa for Antoine de Paule, a knight of the Order of St. John. It was expanded into a palace following de Paule's election as Grand Master in 1623.

The palace was used as a residence by subsequent Grand Masters, being enlarged a number of times in the process. It was the headquarters of the rebel National Assembly during the uprising of 1798–1800, and it later became a residence for the Civil Commissioners, Governors and Governors-General of Malta. It was often used by British sovereigns and other royalty during their stay in Malta. It has been the official residence of the President since the office was created in December 1974.
