The Venetian armoury (Armeria or Armarento) is situated between the Loggia and St. Titus’ Square. Although it served a different purpose than the Noblemen’s Club, the two buildings formed a single complex.

It was built by the Venetians in order for large quantities of munitions to be stockpiled and guarded there. The building was put to similar use by the Ottomans, while it was also used as a treasury, where the tax paid as part of the island’s annual contribution were kept.
