This page is about the House of the Vallista. For the book, see Vallista (book). For the animal, see Vallista (animal).

The House of the Vallista is a House of engineers and craftsmen.

Vallista are renowned as builders and especially architects; the majority of the great structures in the Dragaeran Empire, including the Imperial Palace, were constructed by Vallista.

A Vallista Reign is implied to be somewhat socially-repressive, with threats of censorship over literature and a cultural shift that drives common vices underground, much to the Jhereg's profit.
