Description

After having been picked up from your hotel or the cruise terminal, you'll depart with your guide to the southern part of Malta. Your first stop includes a visit to the Tarxien Temple, which offers a unique collection of circa 3000 B.C. sanctuaries. You can admire stone idols and tablets, domestic animal carvings, altars and screens decorated with spiral designs and other patterns, and oracular chambers. Your tour then continues to the Hagar Qim and Mnejidra Megalithic Temples. Set in a rural area near the village of Zurrieq, this ancient temple which dates back to 3300 B.C. has the largest and heaviest megaliths of all the temple sites around the Maltese Islands. The Mnajidra Temple, less than 1 kilometer from Hagar Qim, offers unique views of the high cliffs that characterize the coast of this part of the island. Just before the fisherman's village of Marsaxlokk on your way back, you will discover Ghar Dalam. The Ghar Dalam Cave is a highly important site where the earliest evidence of human settlement on Malta, which dates back 7,000 years ago, was discovered. The site is a huge 80-meter cavern which is opened to visitors, and the small annexed museum contains fossil remains of animals such as hippopotamus and volatives which were found in the cave and date back to the Pleistocene era. Following this last visit, your tour will end with you being returned to your point of origin.
