Abstract: There ar~ three carriage gates, two of which open on the Zebbug and Buskett roads and one on the Notabile road. Close to the lodge a round pedestal was previously surmounted by a cross. Very near is an unusual tiny chapel which has an altar piece of the crucifixion carved in bas-relief. There is too, a high cross on the circular steps to the south of the Palace. From the Notabile gate on the right is an archway with the coat-of-arms of the Grandmaster Lascaris (1636 - 1657) carved over it. The road beneat it leads to Buskett. The second archway, the main entrance to the Palace Courtyard has the shield of the Grandmaster Nicholas Cottoner (1663 - 1680) over it.
