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.

Mdina & Rabat

Mdina - the old capital

Mdina is the old capital city of Malta and lies on the south-western part of the island. You could say only a little bit in the outback. Beside it is Rabat. The population of Mdina is around 400 people. It is quite impossible that the population can increase, because the whole city resembles more a castle or fort then a city. The city lies 190mtrs above sea level (that’s quite high for Maltese landscape) and is surrounded with slopes on three sides. The city has almost the form of a square and is very strong fortified.

Golden Bay - probably the most beautiful beach in Malta

Golden Bay is situated in the northwest part of the island. The beach is somewhat difficult to reach, since it lies quite remote. However it is worth the strain, as seen on the pictures; -). Sun, sand and sea. The beach is very large and extends itself far into the sea. The bay offers stunning scenery with its beautiful rock. Sunset at this beach is breath-taking. Also a range of boats are offered, like: Motorboats, Banana boats, small sailing boats, etc.
