Despite its name, this imposing 16th Century edifice is more than a conference centre.

The Republic Hall, the main auditorium, has a seating capacity of 1400, and aside from theatrical performances, the Mediterranean Conference Centre has been the venue for such events as exhibitions, banquets and conventions.

Construction of the Sacra Infermeria, as it was then known commenced in 1574. From 1575 until 1798, this served the function of two enormous wards. In 1676, Grand Master Nicolas Cotoner established the School of Anatomy and surgery within this building. It suffered extensive damage in World War II. Throughout its history, this construction served a number of functions – from 1918 until 1940, it was utilized as the police headquarters; as a children’s theatre in 1950 and as from 1959, it was an examination centre.

In 1979, it was transformed into the Mediterranean Conference Centre, and has since been the venue for spectacular shows such as ballets and orchestras.
