Tarxien Temples, Tarxien

(3.2/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Explore the walkways around, above, and through the remains of one of the largest and most complex prehistoric sites on the islands at Tarxien Temples. The four megalithic structures, discovered in 1913 by local farmers, were built between 3600 and 2500 BCE. The temples showcase examples of prehistoric art that have survived the millennia, including relics of two bulls and a sow. Watch for informational boards explaining the significance of the ruins and how the temples were used. Be sure to bring a hat and water, as it can get very hot and shade is limited.

  • Having eyes Yes sees! It's not built our civilization! In order to understand the need to appear on the site! Recommend to visit and think!

  • If you like archaeology, highly recommend to visit them. They have a rather interesting explanation about the origin of temples and a quite remarkable conservation status. The entrance is not expensive

  • Archaeology lovers will appreciate this site quite large and well preserved. The route is well signposted. There are explanatory boards in English very clear

  • The temples have been protected by a large tent. There is also access to an audio guide through an app which you can download, but there is also information as you walk along the pathway around and inside the temples.
  • Very impressive temples, presented with minimal context. There is a "Tarxien temple app" you should preinstall to get more detail. Gantries allow good wheelchair access, and also provide a running circuit for kids bored of Neolithic remains.
  • Its good indeed. But six euros is a lot i think
  • A small complex of ruins, nice stop if you like neolithic archaeology
  • Not particularly interesting, limestone in different shapes. Probably more interesting to hardcore archelogical people
