Dating as back as far as 3600 BC, these temples (Hagar Qim and Mnajdra) are definitely worth a visit when in Malta! Easy to reach from Valletta via the 74 bus to Zurrieq, just get off at the ‘Hagar’ bus stop. The temples are amazing,...More

These temples built around 3400 B.C out of large stones are very interesting. Historians are not even positive about their function but the stone work and the fact that they were moved long distances and stacked by prehistoric humans is very impressive. There are 2...More

These sites are 5000 years old and still stand in an open landscape the builders would recognise. The visitor centre is worth spending some time in to get a context,and it is helpful to have visited the Archaeology Museum in Valletta first. Be careful to...More

One of the best historic sites on the island, others may be a bit older and the Hypogeum tops it but this is fantastic. Its quite a long trek down a concrete path to the linked Mnajdra temple but worth the walk to see them...More

This site was just the most interesting we visited whilst in Malta and Gozo. One is left open mouthed at how such huge slabs of stone could possibly be negotiated into place never mind placed with such intricate detail. Amazing!

A worth while visit to some really interesting ruins. The movie before in the center is really informative, and helps gain some context before going out to the site itself. These ruins are actually also connected to the Mnajdra Temples, as you pay for both...More

Visited the Hagar Qim Temples and to think how it was constructed all those years ago makes you wonder how they built it but its all explained in the visitors centre so well worth seeing.

A visit is very moving and worthwhile. This was part of a day trip from our base in Birkirkara. We took a bus to Rabat, then took the 201 bus to the Hagar stop and walked the short distance to Hagar Qim. There are two...More

I can confirm that the tower is not open to visitors, or at least it was not on my visit in 2016 and was not looking as if any change was anticipated..

Yes you can get the regular bus. Just go to the main bus station. Behind the kiosk where they sell tickets is a helpful map which shows you which bus to get and even which stop to get off at. The buses announce stops in... More
