Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

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.

Jewelers and stone-vessels were found. Another find was the sleeping priest. Additionally bones of 6000 people were also found. The whole complex should be around 3200 - 2400 years old.


It is believed that the sweat of the many visitors is damaging the temple. To prevent further damage the whole cave-system was modernized and a visitors-limit was introduced. Only 8 - 10 groups are allowed to visit the Hypogeum. Through this method it’s quite impossible to step up and buy a ticket whenever you want. Tickets should be ordered some time earlier. In the summer the sales number of tickets increases, that means that you have to wait longer. While only few people are visiting it during the winter.

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.

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

The whole city of Mdina is worth seeing. The city consists of many small alleys, a huge city wall with three gates, a very nice cathedral (from inside as well as outside), an observation platform (from there you have a nice view over the northern part of Malta), and much, much more. Rabat whereas is a modern city. There are also some nice sights, as the St. Paul’s Church and Grotto, the Museum of Roman Antiquities and the St. Paul’s Catacombs. While Rabat is a bit more vital, Mdina offers more culture and history. Have fun looking through the pages.
