Description

Go back 5,000 years and explore the prehistoric temples of Malta. Breathe life into the ancient history of the island by touring the megalithic temples of Tarxien, Hagar Qim and Ghar Dalam, exploring huge monuments and fossilised animals to gain a glimpse into early European life.

Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Megalithic Temples of Malta date back to 3150 BC, and are claimed as the oldest free-standing stone structures in the world. Start with a visit to the Tarxien Temples, discovered by local farmers in 1914.

Journey on to the Ghar Dalam cave, a prehistoric site where excavations found a series of human and animal bones and fossils. This represents the earliest evidence of human settlements, with remains dating back as far as 7,400 years.

Continue to the fragile temples of Hagar Qim, at the southern tip of Malta. This site is considered as the best example of Maltese megalithic architecture still standing. Discover the Hamrija Tower, 1 of the 13 watchtowers built by Martin de Redin, one of the legendary Knights of Malta.

Esperienza molto interessante, consigliata sopratutto per la ‘Grotta dell’oscurità’ una delle tappe del tour.

This tour essentially is worthwhile and was good. But I have the following comments for improvement: Pickup coach was late by 20 minutes. Guide (?Ana or Hana) was not very enthusiastic and could have spent a little more time at the temples. We just followed her! She left us at some fishing village for 25 minutes-this was not what we booked this tour for. Also,not sure about the Cave-could have added one more ancient temple.
