Vittoriosa was the capital city chosen by the Knights of Malta when they arrived in Malta in 1530. It was mainly from here that they fought the Great Siege of 1565. Immediately after the siege, they started building another city, Valletta, that remains the capital of Malta till today.
The Society organises cultural and social events about once a month. There are members from all over Malta, both Maltese and non-Maltese.
