Invitation – Tour 1 

Notarial Archives ‘our hidden treasures discovered’

Din l-Art Helwa (DLH) is organising the first tour for 2018.  This tour will take us on an interesting visit to the Notarial Archives (NA) in St Christopher Street, Valletta which houses over 20,000 notarial registers and other historic manuscripts spanning a period of 600 years. The Notarial Archives Foundation is a voluntary organisation that aims to protect, showcase, and diffuse knowledge through the archives’ incredible treasure trove of historical information by helping to preserve them for future generations.

Volunteers working on the preliminary stages of document preservation

Ian Camilleri a volunteer with DLH, will coordinate this tour in collaboration with Dr Joan Abela, Consultant Historian at the Notarial Archives.

The tour is set for the Wednesday 21st February 2018 and the details are as follows:

  • A donation of euro10 paid in advance to secure booking. All proceeds go towards restoration and conservation projects.
  • Bookings will be on a first come first served basis (maximum 12 participants).
  • Ian will meet all participants at 9am at Din l-Art Helwa’s offices in Valletta.
  • Participants can park their cars at Park and Ride Floriana and take the shuttle bus to Valletta
  • Ian will take the participants to the NA in St Christopher street
  • Dr Joan Abela and her volunteers will explain the need to preserve this heritage and the processes involved in the restoration and conservation of the treasures that are emerging during this same process.
  • Tour will end by about 12.30pm with tea, coffee and biscuits and informal discussion.

To book and secure a reservation, please forward the donation of euro10 with your booking form to DLH at 133 Melita Street Valletta.  Bookings close on Monday 19th February 2018.
