Real estate firm Malta Sotheby's International Realty is marketing Archbishop Mikiel Gonzi’s former Birgu home for sale at €990,000.
The unique property is a 230 square metre house which dates back to circa 1600, the era of the Knights of Malta, and is listed as a heritage site.
The Archbishop is mostly known for the introduction of the interdiction of supporters of the Labour Party. This came about due to the governing Labour Party’s push for the separation of church and state.

The property is described as an “expertly renovated townhouse” in a ready-to-move state. It boasts two bedrooms, three bathrooms and a sitting and dining room that leads to a terrace.
The townhouse is spread over four floors and includes a “modern lift”. The terrace hosts a jacuzzi and offers an outside dining and entertainment area.
Sotheby’s describes the property as having been converted in a way that respects the old heritage and the original architectural character, yet also caters for contermporary living.
