Valletta
Grand Masters Palace
The Grand Masters Palace in Valletta, known simply as The Palace, was built between 1573 and 1578 by the Maltese architect Gerolamo Cassar in the renaissance style. Built during the reign of Grandmaster Jean de La Cassiere (1572-1581) - the head of the Order of the Knights of St John the Palace was to serve as the Grandmaster's residence: Something that it was to do for more than 200 years. Subsequent Grandmasters were to enlarge and improve the original building until it took its present shape during the mid-18th century. READ MORE
