The Auberge d'Aragon (Maltese: Berġa ta' Aragona) is one of the auberges built in Birgu, Malta, for the langues of the knights of the Order of Saint John. It housed the langue of Aragon until the building of a larger Auberge d'Aragon in Valletta in the 1570s. The building was next to Auberge d'Auvergne et Provence and Auberge de France and together, these Auberges formed a compact block. Unfortunately the facade of Auberge d'Aragon has been recently altered to an extant that it is unrecognizable from the original. The building was included on the Antiquities List of 1925, together with the other auberges in Birgu.[1] It was scheduled as a Grade 1 national monument on 22 December 2009,[2] and it is also listed on the National Inventory of the Cultural Property of the Maltese Islands.[3]
