Abstract: Loubenx Verdalle, the Cardinal, the Prince of the Church and the Grandmaster of the Order of St. John had asked Gerolamo Cassar, an architect to design a secluded hunting lodge and, in accordance with the times, a fortified one, in the seductive valley of Buskett. Cassar had just completed St. John's Cathedral and seemingly enough it clearly shows that he had not yet shed away his style from all the splendid power ful buildings. The Castle was built in a mannerist style and the site was acquired from the Bishopric of Malta.
