Follow in the Footsteps of Malta’s Knights Templar

 Next to the Knights Templar, probably the most well known group of Crusader knights were the Knights of Malta, also known as The Knights of St John.

The famous Knights of St. John left their mark on small island on the Mediterranean, called Malta. To gaze out on their fortresses and wander through their palaces is a dream come true for many history seeking tourists.

Our journey started in the magnificent residence where they made their home. The Grand Master Palace is located on Valletta’s main street, Triq ir-Repubblika.
