Create an itinerary including Hal Saflieni Hypogeum
Venture into one of the very few accessible underground prehistoric structures in the world at Hal Saflieni Hypogeum. The elaborate system of subterranean chambers dates back to around 3,000 BCE and is on the World Heritage List. The site was presumably once an underground sanctuary that later turned into a necropolis. See the distinctive architecture and red ochre paintings on the walls. The site includes a visitor center that offers multimedia presentations and information about the structure and the lost civilization that built it. Due to its layout, the necropolis is not wheelchair accessible and people who suffer from claustrophobia might feel uncomfortable inside the chambers. Make a reservation online in advance, as the site is popular and space is limited. Make Hal Saflieni Hypogeum a part of your Paola vacation plans using our Paola trip itinerary planning website.

  • What a stunning experience... I went there without much prior knowlage so I did not know what to expect. The tour was amazing, creepy and claustrophobic yet it was very fascinating, intriguing and mysterious. The audio guide is well made and well fitting to the experience. IMHO must see in Malta. Absolutely worth the price and your time.
  • By far the most incredible experience we had on Malta. It was in any way worth the money to visit this unique place. It is so impressive almost The audio guide is well made. You can best visit the prehistoric sites first on Malta and then visit the archeology museum in Valetta. It makes more sense that way.
