MALTA 22. Domus Romana Museum, Roman Museum near Rabat-Mdina

(including some Islamic exhibits)  *  MALTA INDEX

The Domvs Romana is a ruined Roman-era house located on the boundary between Mdina and Rabat, Malta. It was built in the 1st century BC as an aristocratic town house (domus) within the Roman city of Melite. In the 11th century, a Muslim cemetery was established on the remains of the domus.

The site was discovered in 1881, and archaeological excavations revealed several well preserved Roman mosaics, statues and other artifacts, as well as a number of tombstones and other remains from the cemetery.

Since 1882, the site has been open to the public as a museum, which is currently run by Heritage Malta.
