Tarxien Temple

Tarxien Temple

The most popular temple in Malta can be found in the village of Tarxien and is known as the Tarxien Temple. This was accidentally discovered in the year 1916. It is said that a farmer was complaining about too many huge stones in his field - the consequence was that an archaeologist focused his attention on this field.

Presumably this was the temple part of a bigger settlement. The excavation took 5 years, huge stones were found in 4 different parts in the temple. The most significant discovery found was that of a statue of a woman - however only the lower part of her body was left. The female figure was probably the goddess of fertility. Sculptures are carved in some walls. The Tarxien-Phase is understood to date back in the period between 3000 - 2500 B.C.

The Tarxien Temple is interesting and not as plain as the temple in Borg in-Nadur in Birzebbuga. You can find signs of the different rooms and artifacts - the temple is not very big but full history.

Entrance fee is €2.40 for adults, €1.20 for students and €0.60 for children.

Opening times: Monday-Saturday from 08:00-17:00, Sunday till 16.15; 16th June.-30th September daily until 14:00, closed on public holidays.

Sights in Marsascala

Marsascala does definitely not count as a place with numerous sights and a long history, however as a foreigner there are some things to see. Here are some of the sights which can be found in Marsascala:

Swieqi

Swieqi is a calm and also nice district/village above St. Julians and adjacent to Paceville. From Swieqi you just need between 5 - 15 Minutes by walk to the entertainment centre Paceville or to St. Julians. Swieqi is a nice place to live. Dogs are allowed; almost everybody has at least one. The prices for flats/houses are comparably cheap.

Plaza Shopping Mall

The Plaza Shopping Mall lies in the centre of Sliema and is similar to Bay Street in Paceville, however the flair is much different. The reason for this difference is probably that BayStreet is influenced very strongly by the nearby entertainment centre and nightlife of Paceville.
