Malta's historical links with France, one of our main European partners, go very far back in history. Twelve French Grandmasters ruled over the Island during the 268 year stay of the Order of St John of Jerusalem between 1530 and 1798. Malta’s rich artistic heritage is largely owed to the great contribution of the Knights of Malta particularly to French Grandmaster Jean de La Valette who gave his name to our capital city Valletta, chosen as European City of Culture 2018.
The role of the Maltese Embassy in France is to ensure the continuous development of the excellent relations between the two countries on the political, economic and cultural levels. It is our aim to bring these relations even closer. The good service of the great number of French citizens of Maltese origin living in France will assist in reaching this goal.
