  • Interesting historical site. Two temples you can visit. There is an audio guide to download on your phone providing context to the sites. The temples are shaded by a protective awning that helps in their preservation. The visitor center has toilets and bottled drinks for purchase. The walk to the second temple is nicely paved and downhill. For 1 euro, you can get a ride on a golf cart like vehicle back to the top of the hill. Was a nice relief on a warm afternoon.
  • Fascinating site which resonates with the very ancient past. In July 2021, there were a few visitors but it was hardly an issue. Amazing how few people are aware of these Maltese megalithic sites. Better for me I guess.
