I suggest going to the Malta Archaeological Museum in Valletta before coming here if possible. Going to the museum and listening to the self guided recorded tour will give one a greater appreciation of Ggantija Magalithic Temples. The museum attached to the temple is but...More

A little way from the visitor centre and museum - not to be missed! This temple complex can be reached by public bus from Victoria and isn't far from the Windmill. We spent approximately an hour here. The ruins aren't in as good as a...More

Apparently these stones pre-date Stonehenge, UK. There is an interpretation centre before seeing the stones and alot of them are clad in scaffolding - not entirely to keep them up but for movement sensors to monitor any changes. I can't say I was that impressed...More

Amazing ancient ruins in the middle of Gozo. It’s thought to worship the Nephilim from 3500 BC. If you have the opportunity to visit Hagar temples in Malta, I would say this is not a must visit, but if you have more than a day...More

Nice museum and really old constructions outside (3500 B.C.) For me it was really impressive to see all those really old houses and temples. I would recommend it!

A must visit place if you are in Gozo. One of the few places on earth (if not the only) of that era that is available to visit. Very informative film available to help you understand the value of the place.

As much as I enjoyed tramping round this site and examining the stones from every possible angle, I still found it a bit disappointing on one level, possibly because about half of it is actually behind scaffolding and metal stays to make sure it remains...More
