Castello Dei Baroni was built in 1783 during the reign of Emanuel de Rohan -Grandmaster of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta - originally as a Baronial Hunting lodge. Today Castello Dei Baroni is utilised as the headquarters for the Knights Hospitalliers of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem &ndashThe Ecumenical Order.

We have opened the doors of this Maltese gem to showcase some of its treasures and allow a unique insight into the history of the knights, bringing this aspect of Maltese history to life.

The Tour


A tour of the Castello, as it is affectionately known, will begin with an optional 23 minute audio visual multi-lingual experience which has been specially created to take its viewers through the Order’s 900 years of history.

The tour would continue with an explanation of how the Castello would have been utilised in the days of the Knights and an explanation of the antique swords and the variety of original artefacts.
