Mediterranean Conference Centre

The 16th century building now the Mediterranean Conference Centre has long been one of Valletta’s most remarkable landmarks.
Located towards the tip of Valletta peninsula. the MCC stands for distinction with magnificent views across the Grand Harbour.

The building was built as a hospital in the 16th century by the Order of St John, and it was known as the Sacra Infermeria. It was known as
the Grand Hospital during the French occupation of Malta. It was one of the leading hospitals in Europe until the 18th century,
and it remained in use until 1920.

The building is now used for multiple banquets, exhibitions, international conventions and theatrical shows.

The MCC is a rare example in the region of a heritage building functioning to the exacting demands of the 21st century.

The Centre’s long experience and reputation as a unique quality venue is confirmed by its membership of the prestigious
Historic Conference Centres of Europe (HCCE)
