See one of the worlds’ oldest temples
If you have to choose one historical sight to see while in Malta this is it: The Ggantija temples and heritage park in Xaghra village is the oldest free-standing temple in the world. The Ggantija megalithic temple complex is one of the oldest and historically significant man-made structures on Earth – older than the pyramids of Egypt! The Ġgantija temples were built during the Neolithic period (c. 3600–2500 BCE), making them more than 5,500 years old. They were built before metal was had been introduced, so the temples are made of limestone.
