Pinsteps. Memorial Monument for Hospitaller hospital

In the Middle Ages, the crusaders build the halls of the Order of Hospitallers near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. The name of the catholic order determines its purpose. He was in charge of the hospitality and accommodation of the pilgrims. The patron saint of the order was John the Baptist. The successors of the Hospitallers from the holy land settled in Malta. The Maltese cross came from the cross of the Hospitallers. You can see this cross on a stone pedestal telling about attempts to revive the catholic order in Jerusalem at the end of the 19th century. English Queen Victoria patronized the catholic order of St. John's in Maltha. The Order of Hospitallers, or rather, the renewed Order of St. John, founded the largest ophthalmic clinic in the Middle East. It was housed in new buildings on the Hebron Road outside the old city. But after the war of 1948, the hospital and the institution moved here.
