Nice unique way of turning an old quarry into a park. Peaceful, plenty of shade for when the sun gets hot around mid day. Toilet facilities very good. The only draw back is there is no café. Take your own water and food.

We enjoyed our visit to the unique spectacle that is Lithica, but boy was it hot down there. I don't think I have ever been so hot in my life, it took me all day to cool down after the visit.
It really is a wonderful place to visit and well worth the effort.
It is not difficult to find, just turn down from the roundabout at the entry to Cuitdella from the ME1 and then it is off the next roundabout.
Very reasonable cost to visit, but choose your day carefully in the height of summer

What a fantastic place to see. Excellent place! Amazing quarry, truthfully a hidden gem.
We have done the blue path it takes one hour plus, but taking pictures I would say it could be done in 1: 35 minutes. Totally recommend to visit.

After reading the Lonely Planet and Trip advisor we decided to visit the old quarry at Lithica. We really enjoyed our visit. It was fascinating to stand at the bottom of the hole and look up at the marks of the miners gone before. The gardens are lovely and it was really fascinating. The volunteers do a great job and it is well worth a visit.

Presented with a tourist map that said the site was a mere one kilometre from the edge of town, my husband and I decided to walk it.

The directions from the hotel receptionist were poor, but then she had probably never been asked about walking before. It doesn't help that the site is not signposted at all.

So to help others we provide the following walking instructions. Leaving Ciutedella at the Horse Roundabout, take the Mao road east. Go past the sports centre on the right at the next roundabout. Go past the Police and Fire stations on the right. Turn right at the Shoe Roundabout. Take first left. Past the Municipal Cemetery (also worth a look), on the right. Past the prehistoric village on the left. The road disappears into a gravel footpath. Carry on eastwards until the road reappears. Walk under the underpass (carrying the dual carriageway). Up a little slope. Lithica is about 100 metres on the left, next to an active quarry.
