Of course, this is not a "Göbeklitepe", yet, for archeology lovers, Ggantije Temples are the most interesting place to visit in Malta. The standing stones of this temple are dated back to between 3600 and 3200 B.C, ie, even before Stonehenge. They were discovered back...More

The place is really interesting and worth visiting. First the museum introduces us to the history and legends of the place and describes how the excavations were made. Then, you go around the garden part and see the actual ruins, which are something amazing. They...More
