“War tunnels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

It is hard to believe that so many people existed in these tunnels during the war. If you are a history buff well worth a visit.

Not suitable for the disabled as you have to go up or down a steep staircase to get to the entrance.

“Mellieha air raid shelter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Worth a visit and an insight into what the locals endured during ww2. Closed on a Sunday so had to go later in the week but there was a talent show at the nearby church which was worth watching. Good to indulge in the local culture for a while.

truly a humbling experience to see what the Maltese people endured through 2nd world war, we walked passed several times before going in thinking it may be just another tourist gimmick how wrong we were.
