Ruin Historic Site
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.

  • This is the second of the temples at the Triq Hagar Qim site - 10 euros for both. It takes a good 10 minutes walk downhill (exposed in the sun) and the same back - to get to this second temple. But it...  more »

  • Lovely place to visit especially if you are at Hagar Qim, a long incline between the 2 sites but for 1 euro each you can hire the service of a buggy to travel between the 2. Impressive site  more »

  • Incredible temple complex. There is very little information posted about the site in English.
  • Quite, takes you back to 1000’s of years, you can enjoy nature.
  • The site is very interesting; their museum gives a great insight into the construction of the megalithic temples. There is a long downhill walk from the first site to the second but electric carts operate between them for an 'optional' €1 tip per person.
  • Visited as part of a group tour which was £32 including the entry ticket to this site. There are two old remains here that are shielded from the elements by a large canopy. Little is known about the remains but its worth visiting with a tour guide as there isn't actually a lot to see. Fortunately for the elderly or people with disabilities, there is a golf-caddy that transports you between the two sites, but it is 1 euro each way.
  • Incredibly lovely site. Only a short walk (or if you can't walk, a short ride for €1 with one of the provided cars) from Hagar Qim and together they are a must visit when you're on Malta.
