We paid 30 euro for a family ticket, and with that were able to visit the windmill round the corner too, so felt this was reasonable value for a family excursion. The items on display in the visiting area are interesting, and the information provided with them very well put, as were the timeline information. We ranged from an active,... More

Went with my family and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The interpretation centre does an excellent job explaining the history, culture, and life of the people who built the temple. It was great to be able to walk around the site and try to make sense of how the temple was used. A great stop for at least an... More

Good place to see if somebody like history.Place is a UNESCO registered but €9 it's little expensive to see this monument.

The temples were built c.3600 BC and are the oldest human-built structures in the world and arguably the most impressive in the Maltese islands. So definitely a must-see site. There's an excellent interpretative centre cum museum - very informative about life in the Neolithic and containing some delightful artefacts - we especially liked the two "Fat Ladies" sitting side by...

Found my brolly in the gift shop and came away with magical carob syrup and Gozo salt. Most harmonious old temple fit for healing rituals amidst gigantic rock enclosures. 5,000BC! Just felt ancient and stone sound, with calls from all the larks and prickly pear trees. Boring museum but suitably reengaging to find the real monument. Go!

The place has very informative panels, posters, videos, etc.. Items are very well displayed and the temples are being well preserved. A must see by the Maltese and tourists.

...not at all sure these are what they are made out to be. To me they look far to similar to British barrow sires to be anything but burials so i found myself underwhelmed due to the insistance that they were "temples" It was my own fault really, the local guide advised against visiting due to the expense - he...

This is supposed to be older than the Egyptian pyramids. Amazing to even imagine how they would have built it with such huge stones thousands of years ago.

On Gozo these temples are really worth finding. Well explained, very beautiful and well preserved. Gozo is really worth the trip too. Nice shop near the Temples with great knitwear
