1.9/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web
The Skorba temples are megalithic remains on the northern edge of Żebbiegħ, in Malta, which have provided detailed and informative insight into the earliest periods of Malta's neolithic culture. The site was only excavated in the early 1960s, rather late in comparison to other megalithic sites, some of which had been studied since the early 19th century. The site's importance has led to its listing as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a listing it shares with six other megalithic temples in Malta.

This later excavation allowed the use of modern methods of dating and analysis. The temple itself is not in good condition, especially in comparison to the more complete temples of Ħaġar Qim and Tarxien. However, the importance of this site does not lie in the actual remains but rather in what was garnered from their excavation.

  • As for the temples of Ta' Hagrat, these temples are open only on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and tickets cannot be bought on the spot. Fortunately, you can enter directly with Malta passes. These temples are in very bad condition and much smaller than those of Hagar Qim, Mnajdra, Tarxien or Ggantija so well you do the tour in 3 minutes... Note that one of the temple, the more poorly preserved, is outside the enclosure pays. Entry is €3.50 or €6.00 with ticket combi for the temples of Ta' Hagrat (who are just a little more interesting).

  • It seems to 0/4500 before the ruins. For more information that was exhibited in the National Museum of Archaeology in Valletta. (Lol) buses are the country was right, but because it was so I went by taxi. If 20 minutes because for the time being remains small enough. If If the bus takes about an hour until the next bus. Younger brother came out and hit it several times since and closed the entrance is not at first glance, but ping pong is located beside the right column and will unlock. Seen during the tours seems to please check if is not too was woven (Hahaha) in large ruins, ruins of the oldest wouldn't hurt either. Mind rot when you get lost, like a matter of time.
