Malta Experience


A whip through 7000 years of history, this 45-minute show also highlights Malta's scenic attractions. It's screened in the basement of the Mediterranean Conference Centre, which occupies the Sacra Infermeria, the 16th-century hospital of the Order of St John. The entrance fee includes a tour of the hospital, visiting the Grand Hall that once housed around 300 patients.
