A general photo of The Armoury
The Armoury has one of the larger collections of armoury and weapons in the region. The Order of St John had great interest in maintaining and updating their arsenal of weapons. When a knight of the Order died, his weapons and horses would revert to the Armoury for further use. The Armoury is divided in two rooms. The first one has mainly suits of armour, helmets and other corresponding parts, and the second part has mainly weapons.
