29 Victory Square, Naxxar, NXR 1700, Malta
Palazzo Parisio is an exceptionally large palazzo, testifying to the ambitions of a wealthy 19th century Maltese family.
A haven of colour and scents, the gardens of the palazzo are a perfect testimony to the migration of Italian landscaping, as well as the merging of cultures between Malta and southern Italy. Creation of the gardens included a highly complex water and irrigation system with the digging of a water tank, measuring half the size of the garden and linked to wells in the neighbourhood. The walled Italian gardens are a mixture of symmetry and Mediterranean colours with many Mediterranean and exotic species – Chorisia speciosa, Meryta denhamii, Banksia seratifoglia, Coculus, Quercus ilex, Araucaria, Brugmansia, Erythrina cristagalli, Jacaranda, Sapindus, and Oleander.
There is also a vast collection of hybrid Hibiscus, more than 60 plants of different colours and a rich collection of bougainvilleas and of citruses.
