A very interesting place to visit but like many places in Malta it is hard to see what is original and what has been 'refurbished'

After purchasing tickets we visit a small museum. Then outside is the ggantija temple. Less than a minute walk . All you see is a pile of stones.

We were disappointed with our visit, unfortunately, because I am a huge fan of prehistoric sites and have already visited many around the world. The fun part starts trying to find the entrance. The signpost brought us to old entrance... closed... After a walk we did find the new entrance,with a flashy visitor center (a pity that it is totally... More

This is a very interesting site for those who can comprehend it but children probably just see it as a pile of stones. It is not impressive like Tikal or the Pyramids at Giza. To know that they were built more than a 1,000 years before the pyramids though is astounding. they are about 5,500 years old. The highlight for... More

These megaliths make Stonehenge and Avebury in Wiltshire look like miniatures. The site is well presented, accessible, and the information boards are enlightening.

If you are ever on the island of Gozo this is a must see. It's around 5000BC, it's one of if not the oldest free standing building in the world it's older then Stone Henge. It's around 25€ to enter once in there is a museum you walk through with old materials and bits found on site. Videos and boards... More

This was by far the best and most interesting of all the Temples I visited while in Malta, although these are of course situated on the smaller neighbouring island of Gozo. They are easily accessible via the public bus from the ferry at Mgarr for those choosing to visit for the day, and I am sure are also on the... More

We visited the temples as part of a day trip exploring Gozo. The visitor centre was interesting and informative whilst the temples were pretty impressive. Absolutely stunning views over Gozo from the temples. Slightly over priced however i'm sure this goes towards the upkeep and restoration of the UNESCO heritage site so wouldn't complain too much!

Considered as one of the most important archaeological sites on the Maltese islands, they are certified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. They make an impressive sight with Victoria and its Citadel. This attraction is located in Zaghra, Gozo and consists of two temples dating back to between 3600 and 3200 BC. The name derives from the Maltese world ‘Ggant’... More

Well worth a visit if you have any interest in history. there was enough to maintain the interest of our curious 4 year old, and our tenacious ten year old, at the end of a solid day of touring around Gozo. There is some fascinating history here, but even better, I believe, they are happy to leave some unknowns, unknown!
