For more than 3000 years various world powers prided themselves in conquering Malta or counting it among their possessions. Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Greeks, Arabs and Spanish all had come and gone leaving in some way or other their mark on Malta’s culture and civilization. None however, left it so indelibly as the Knights of St John. For 268 years they made the Island their home embellishing it with palaces, churches and auberges and fortifying it with the strongest walls military history had ever experienced.
