Situated in a purpose-built panoramic auditorium, the show chronicles Malta’s unique history in just 45 minutes. A must-see audio-visual treat, The Malta Experience will enrich your understanding of the islands, its people and the places you’ll see on your visit.
Malta's Knights of St John are famous for repelling an invasion and their military exploits abroad. But their origins were actually those of peace and caring for the sick. This noble past is revealed on a tour of "La Sacra Infermeria" (Holy Infirmary). Built in 1574, this hospital was the most revolutionary in Europe. Its resident chemists invented a number of groundbreaking treatments, such as the use of honey to treat wounds and the serving of food on silver plates to prevent the spread of bacteria. "La Sacra Infermeria's" 155 meter (508 feet) main ward was the longest in Europe.
You begin with the 45 minute Audio-Visual Spectacular, followed by a 30 minute guided tour around the old hospital built by the Knights of St. John.
