More information:

Commissioned in 1572 by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière as the conventual church of the Order of the Knights Hospitaller of St John and designed by the celebrated Maltese military architect Gerolamo Cassar, St John’s Co-Cathedral stands as a unique monument of international importance. The church is dedicated to St John the Baptist, the patron saint of the Order. The decoration of this chapel commenced in 1664. The walls of the chapel were carved with intricate designs including the double-headed eagle which was adopted by the German Langue as its emblem and appears throughout the chapel.
