Historic Seat of the SMOM Commandery - Orvieto, Italy

The inscription on the door reads,
Sovrano Militare Ordine di Malta
Gran Priorato di Roma
San Giovanni di Orvieto
Antica Sede della Commenda dell'Ordini dei Cavalieri
San Giovanni di Gerusaleme.
This is the site of the ancient Commandery of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem in Orvieto. We stumbled across this site by accident when visiting Orvieto a couple weeks back while on pilgrimage to Rome for the 900th anniversary of the papal bull recognizing the Order.
