When the Knights of the Order of St John came to Malta in 1530, they made Birgu their headquarters and the Church of St. Lawrence their congventual (belonging to a convent) church. Jean Levesque de la Cassiere, the Grand Master at that time, paid for the building of the church himself. The work started in 1573, on the plans of the Maltese architect Gerolamo Cassar. The church was completed four years later. Monsignor Ludvico de Torres, Archbishop of Monreale, consecrated the building on 20 February 1578. A book full of educational quizez and crafts.
