Essentially, it is the history of how an early 18th century farmhouse in middle Malta came to be the Grade 1 listed headquarters of a noble charitable worldwide Order with the Grand Master of the Order as its Grand Commander. The story is told through the Commanders of the Jurisdiction and how across the years they have taken the ethos of the Castello Lanzun forwards whilst remaining true to the Order’s ideals.

The history is in four parts which can be accessed from the menu on the left.
