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.

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

The Hypogeum is a subsurface cave-system in Hal-Saflieni (a small village) near Paola. The caves were discovered accidentally during the process of excavating a cistern in 1902. The numerous rooms are distributed on three levels which are all connected with stairs.

The only public transport vehicle is the BUS

The bus-system is very easy to understand. A bus always goes two ways, either to Valletta or from Valletta away. In front of the gate of Valletta there is a huge roundabout - that’s the main bus-terminus in Malta. Some buses are also directly linking two cities between the north and south, but most of the buses are stopping in Valletta.

San Gwann

San Gwann is a calm residential area. It lies central on the east-coast of Malta and is sourounded by Swieqi in the north, St. Julians, Sliema and Gzira in the east and Msida and Birkirkara in the south. Westwards are fields and Naxxar. The main road of Malta passes directly at San Gwann. What to see in San Gwann? In San Gwann is nothing exceptional to see. It‘s just a calm residential area.
