Parvis which is part of the Rabat Pauline complex to be restored through €100,000 investment
The parvis which is part of the Pauline complex in Rabat, and under which there are possible remains from the Roman period, is to be restored through a 100,000 euro investment.
This was announced by Minister Ian Borg, along with the management of the Local Council and Infrastructure Malta, and archpriest Fr Louis Suban.
The project includes strengthening the floor through a bed of concrete, improvement of rainwater channels, and resurfacing of the pedestrian area with new paving made of stone slabs similar to those in other areas of the parvis. The work is to be carried out by Infrastructure Malta and will be started in the coming days.
Minister Borg stated that through this project Infrastructure Malta will be improving the infrastructure for people using the parvis as a passageway between St Paul’s Square and Main Street. The Minister added that the works will respect the locality’s historical environment, further stating that this and similar projects will improve quality of life for residents as well as the local tourist product, particularly as this part of Rabat is very popular with tourists.
