  • John Vella is a polite intellectual who about 20 years ago he bought an old House of Cospicua to keep your collection of books. The House had a cellar completely cluttered with debris, which when removed revealed probably Punic and Roman artifacts. Since then John devotes all prior free time and passion to the enhancement of the House and, indirectly, of the history of Cospicua, showing everyday objects that the villagers give. An hour in his company allows you to make a journey in a minor story, but no less exciting: every corner, furnishing or graffiti on the walls of his house reveals a compelling story to tell, or suggestive hypothesis to be investigated. It is open on Saturdays and Sunday morning, at other times by appointment.

  • As other reviewers have mentioned, the museum is a hidden gem. You have to make an effort to get to and find the museum (unless you stay at Julsys B & B (which you should), which is only a block away)...  more »
