The once-beautiful building is on its way to its former glory.
As part of its restoration, which will reportedly cost some €10 million, Heritage Malta has shared an update of what’s currently happening at Villa Guardamangia, primarily known to be then-Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s home in Malta between 1949 and 1951.

First off, according to the video, an extensive 3D Cloud Laser scanning of the building is taking place, before the back-breaking restoration work truly starts. To do this, Heritage Malta Digitisation Department is collaborating with the Planning Authority and University of Malta via the project SIntegraM.
Meanwhile, several urgent structural works are being carried out to safeguard the prestigious building. Following this process, the extensive restoration project which will restore the villa to its original glory can begin!
We can’t wait to see this stunning phoenix rise from the ashes.
