Grand Master's Palace
Republic St, Valletta, Malta
Grand Master's PalaceThe administrative center of Malta for more than 300 years, the Grand Master’s Palace provides visitors with an atmospheric look at Malta’s military history. Immaculately preserved weapons and armor send viewers’ imaginations back to the Great Siege of Malta by the Ottomans in 1565. Especially notable is the personal armor of Grand Master La Valette, who led the resistance against the siege.
Military artifacts aren’t the only items on display: Don’t miss the Gobelin tapestries in the Council Chamber that portray hunting scenes from around the known (and unknown) world.
