Long Description:

According to the the Times of Malta the Grand Masters’ Palace is haunted by a ghost cat. Link

"Built by la Cassiere, this palace was one of the three residences of the British Governor. According to Mr Attard, an English lady who lived in the residence had been tormented by the sound of cats and dogs fighting in one of the rooms. When she went into the room to investigate, she discovered nothing. There was, however, an occasion when one of the ghosts appeared in the form of a large cat. She followed it to the window, and saw it jump outside in the yard where some men were working.When she asked about the cat’s whereabouts, they couldn’t make out what she was referring to. They hadn’t seen any cat."

Also Wikipedia reports: Link

"The palace is allegedly haunted by a number of ghosts. According to an English lady who stayed at the palace while it was the residence of the British Governor, she used to hear sounds of cats and dogs fighting in one of the rooms, but she saw nothing once she entered the room. One time, the ghost manifested itself in the form of a large cat, which jumped through a window before vanishing. Another woman reportedly felt the presence of a ghost when sleeping at the palace."

The Grand Master's Palace is a large square structure located in the center of Valletta. The palace was constructed after Grand Master Pierre de Monte moved the Knights of St. John's headquarters to Valletta, in 1571. Construction of the limestone Grand Master's Palace began in 1579. It was designed in the Mannerist style by architect Glormo Cassar. Over the years the Palace was modified and embellished until it achieved its present Baroque style.
