Abstract: The Valletta Sacra Infermeria enjoyed a prominent reputation throughout centuries with several visitors commenting favourably on the care and hospitality given to its inmates irrespective of creed and social status. Further information about the Sacra Infermeria, albeit an often graphic imaginative one, can be obtained from medically-related scenes drawn by various artists during the 17th century.
