Mnajdra, Qrendi
(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Visit , ancient religious sites built around the fourth millenium BCE. Watch an introductory 3-D film filled with special effects, take in the view of the Mediterranean Sea, and explore the preserved ruins with the help of an audio tour. Be sure to visit the south temple, aligned to mark the position of sunrise on the first day of each season. The walk down to the temples is steep and may be difficult for people with mobility issues. Bring a hat and water with you, as the site gets very hot through the day.

  • Last in a trio of Temple visits in two days and another miracle of ancient achievement with no modern technology to help. Like Hagar Qim nearby, these surviving structures are protected under a canopy...  more »
  • Beautiful archaeological site with panoramic view on the Mediterranean Sea. Here too a remarkable tensile structure protects, but makes it much less usable the ambiance of the place. Definitely worth going there after seeing the site higher. There are 700 metres downhill trail is easy to follow without effort. Ballgame would climb, but there is an electric car that for only one euro takes you back up! Take advantage of it, you get to the top undone from the heat and effort!

  • Directly in the wake of Hagar Qim temple complex and also a must on the list of attractions. Great views :-)

  • Very good 3D film in wonderfully cool air conditioned theatre . Interesting , informative display area before going out side to visit the covered temple sites of Hagar Qimm and Mnajdra. There is a bit of a walk 10 mins ( approx) but scenery is interesting and electric carts that carry 4-5 passengers can be rented if you have mobility issues. The long stone paved walkway in between the temples sets the scene of ancient worshippers making the the same journey some 5,000 years ago. The sites are extraordinary with small information plaques placed in important areas. I recommend getting the audio guide. You can only enter partway into the temples due to conservation concerns which is shame as it would be wonderful to explore all over the site. However, I totally understand the importance of conserving these magnificent sites for further generations. I highly recommend visiting these temples.
  • Brilliant Neolithic temples on 2 sites, well preserved and able to walk in between some of the stones. Hands on with the past.
  • Cool prehistoric buildings. Bigger than the Hagar Qim one. Would recommend a visit on a stay at Malta.
  • Remarkable piece of ancient human architecture and engineering and astrology.
  • Definitely worth a visit if you are in Malta!
