An immense legacy waiting to be discovered

Knights of the Order of Malta Route Visitor Centre


An interdisciplinary centre in which the people of Lora and visitors learn about its historical past, rich heritage and environmental diversity. The visitor can take an interpretative tour of the centre with information panels that explain the presence of the Order of the Knights of St John of Malta, both in Lora del Río and throughout La Vega, their legacy and architectural references.

This Municipal Historical Complex enables the municipality to disseminate its history and culture, creating a place for meeting and exchanging cultural experiences with its inhabitants. This project also seeks to create the necessary infrastructure and take the appropriate steps for promoting the town’s endogenous resources to the tourism sector.

One of the actions of the project “Knights of the Order of Malta Tourist Route” was to restore the old Basilio Palace to house Lora del Río Visitor Centre.
