Albert Jovin de Rochefort was one of many seventeenth century European travellers who visited several cities in Europe, Asia and Africa soon after the cessation of hostilities associated with the so-called Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648). According to his Voyage d’Italie et de Malthe which was but one of a six volume work entitled Le voyageur d’Europe published in Paris in 1672, Albert Jouvin, accompagnied by some friends, arrived in Siracusa, Sicily in December 1663 from where they soon managed to board a war galley of the Hospitaller Order of St John the Baptist which was then visiting that city to participate in the festivities of S. Lucia. Having safely reached Malta on the S. Luigi via Capo Passero, Jouvin remainded on the island for about four weeks and eventually returned to France in 1665 or thereabouts.
