Grand Master’s Palace and Armoury



This Palace was the residence of the Grand Masters of The Knights of St John. It was originally designed by Gelormu Cassar, who also designed the St John’s Co-Cathedral and was one of the first building constructed in Valletta in 1571. It is now the residence of the President of Malta.

The Grandmaster’s Palace & The State Rooms  are built around two courtyards,  one is known as Neptune’s Courtyard and the other Prince Alfreds’.

The Palace armoury is situated on the same site in the Palace Stables – I like looking at armour and weapons – but there is a lot of it there!
