We came across the Knights Hospitallers by accident on the way to the fort and would probably have given it a miss except there was a Trip Advisor sign on the outside of the building.
On entering there is a large room on the left which I believe was used as an infirmary but it is devoid of any sign of this. On the same level there are signs which indicate many other rooms but they are out of bounds. We were able to look through some glass doors to see a large theatre which looked very plush but could not see the connection between a theatre and a hospital.
On going downstairs we noticed a another large room which I suppose was another hospital ward but this was decorated out for a future function (looked like a wedding) and there were toilets there, but on returning from the lower levels this was gated off.
The lower levels had various exhibits, indicating the work carried out, and further down through the narrow corridors were cells. I assume this area was dug out from the rock.
It would have been good to have had some sort of guide to provide information on each level, but you tend to be left to yourself and I feel that we missed a lot.
In the summer heat it was good to go into an attraction which was cool and could see why the building was erected as a hospital in the past.
