Top tips to help you plan a trip to Malta and Gozo to visit the megalithic temples: which are the best temples to visit? What about the museums? Combination tickets, the most practical place to stay, booking in advance for the Ħal-Saflieni Hypogeum, guided tours & transport, food and souvenirs.
Partway between mainland Europe and Africa in the Mediterranean Sea lies the small island of Malta and its even smaller neighbour, Gozo. These islands are best known for their megalithic temples built by Neolithic inhabitants some five to six thousand years ago. The temples are a testament to a tradition of prehistoric architecture that is totally unique to this part of the world. Recognising their international importance, UNESCO classified six of them as parts of the ‘Megalithic Temples of Malta’ World Heritage Site. Not surprising then the temples are a popular tourist attraction.
