The church of Ta’ Giezu in Rabat, Malta, was established by the Franciscans in 1492, marking their presence on the islands. The building, constructed around 1500, has a significant connection to the history of the Knights Hospitaller, as the first Grand Master in Malta, Philippe Villiers de L’Isle-Adam, had a room in the convent and died there in 1534. Over the years, the church has undergone expansions and restorations, being an integral part of the Maltese cultural heritage. In 2017, it suffered structural damage, but restoration is underway to preserve its historical and architectural significance.

The church, considered Malta’s cultural heritage, is a prominent starting point on the Maltese Way, connecting pilgrims to the rich Franciscan heritage and history of the Knights Hospitaller on the island.
