Hagar Qim Temples
The temple of Ħaġar Qim stands on a hilltop overlooking the sea and the islet of Filfa. The site is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

First excavated in 1839, the remains suggest a date between 3800 – 2200 BC, a period known as the Ġgantija phase in Maltese prehistory.

The site consists of a central building and the remains of at least two more structures. Along the external wall, one may find some of the largest megaliths used in the building of these structures, such as a 5.2m high stone and a huge megalith estimated to weigh close to 20 tonnes.

The building itself is made up of a series of C-shaped rooms, known as apses. Walking through the main entrance, one finds a central paved space with an apse on each side.

One of the prehistoric chambers at Ħaġar Qim holds an elliptical hole which is hewn out in alignment with the Summer Solstice sunrise. A dedicated visitor centre offers information about the site in a fun and interactive manner.

Mnajdra Temples
Mnajdra is located on Malta’s southern coast, overlooking the isle of Fifla. The site is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The site consists of three buildings facing a common oval forecourt. The first and oldest structure dates to the Ġgantija phase (3600 – 3200 BC). The second structure known as the South Temple was built in the early Tarxien phase (3150 – 2500 BC). The Central Temple, which lies between the two, was the last to be constructed.

The South Temple has its entrance set in a concave monumental facade and leads to two rooms, or apses. Opposite the main entrance is the doorway to the second set of apses flanked by two large blocks decorated with small drilled holes. This doorway and the decorated blocks mark the position of the rising sun on the first day of spring and autumn (the Equinoxes) and the first day of summer and winter (the Solstices).

A dedicated visitor centre offers information about the site in a fun and interactive manner.

Palace Armoury
The Palace Armoury is a showcase of the opulence of the Knights of St John. Ruling the Maltese Islands from 1530 to 1798, these knights formed a unique brotherhood of resolute warrior monks who defended the Catholic faith against the relentless attacks of the Ottoman Turks.

A visit to the Armoury’s collection will demonstrate that during that era, armour was not simply a means of defending the body against injury during combat. It was also a status symbol and a means of showing one’s wealth and power. The laboriously fashioned and lavishly decorated armour of some of the knights reflect clearly this phenomenon.

Among the most notable artefacts, visitors can view the unique display of suits of armour which were owned by Grand Masters Alof de Wignacourt and Jean de La Valette, armour and weapons used by the Ottoman Empire during the Great Siege of 1565, and a selection of artillery pieces.

St Paul's Catacombs
St Paul’s Catacombs are located on the outskirts of the old Roman capital Melite (today’s Mdina) since Roman law prohibited burials within the city. Serving as a burial ground from Punic and Roman times, the site represents the earliest and largest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta.

The catacombs form a typical complex of interconnected underground Roman cemeteries that were in use up to the 7th century AD. The area is littered with more than 30 hypogea, of which the main complex comprises an intricate system of interconnected passages and tombs that cover an area of over 2000 square metres.

The entrance to the main complex of St Paul’s Catacombs leads to two considerably large halls, adorned with pillars made to resemble Doric columns. The main halls are equipped with two circular rock tables set in a low platform with sloping sides. These triclinia, or Agape tables, were used to host commemorative meals during the annual festival of the dead.

Domus Romana
The Domvs Romana allows visitors to take a glimpse at the private life and habits of an ancient Roman aristocrat. The intricate mosaics which survived for centuries, as well as the artefacts found within the remains, are testimony to the original richness of this dwelling.

The museum display is designed to take the visitor through the various aspects of a Roman family and household, with aspects ranging from the actual division of roles in a Roman family, to fashion, education, entertainment, food and drink.
A highlight at this museum is the only set of marble statues portraying the Emperor Claudius and his family that can be seen in a private house. During the Roman empire, such artworks were normally found in public spaces.

Ghar Dalam Cave and Museum
Malta’s oldest prehistoric site of Għar Dalam engages visitors to step back in time. Rows of ancient animal bones which were unearthed from Għar Dalam cave are exhibited in the museum. No such animals have lived on the Maltese Islands for thousands of years. The bone remains of small-sized elephants and hippopotami are among the most notable exhibits. More bones of the Ice Age animals are still visible inside the cave.

An extensive amount of animal bones were discovered in the ‘Hippopotamus Layer’, deposited by water during the Pleistocene era, around 500,000 years ago. Pebbles and sparse animal bones belonging to species were identified in the next layer, while remains dating from 25,000 to 18,000 years ago were recovered from the ‘Deer Layer’. The ‘Cultural Layer’ holds the earliest evidence of human presence in Malta, some 7,400 years ago.

The site of Għar Dalam is also renowned for its ecological value. A garden of indigenous plants and trees introduce visitors to local flora.

Borg in-Nadur Temples
Borġ in-Nadur boasts a unique location, situated high between two valleys and overlooking St. George’s Bay in Birżebbuġa. It is also 500m away from the prehistoric site of Għar Dalam. The site was in use during both the late Temple Period (3,150 – 2,500 BC) and the Bronze Age (2,400 – 700 BC).

Excavated in the 1920s by eminent archaeologist Margaret Murray, the site of Borġ in-Nadur yielded information that helped our understanding of facets of Maltese prehistory which had until then remained problematic, such as the differences between the Temple Period and the Bronze Age.

The remains and the items which were retrieved during the excavations, are to this day still being analysed by researchers, using techniques which were not available to archaeologists of decades past. The four apsed temple found within the site is fronted by a large enclosed area which is unique for such buildings.

Fort St Angelo
During the past thousand years, whoever gained control of Fort St. Angelo could effectively rule the Maltese Islands. The fort dominates Grand Harbour, strategically located on a hillock. No other fortress has been engaged with the same intensity in the shaping of Malta’s destiny.

After 1530, the Order of St. John christened the military structure as Fort St. Angelo and turned it into their headquarters. The fort played a major role during the Great Siege of 1565.

Between 1906 and 1979 the Royal Navy relocated its command hub inside the fort. During the Second World War, Fort St. Angelo was once more called into action to offer protection against the Axis air raids.

Today, Fort St. Angelo offers spectacular panoramic views of the Grand Harbour and its surrounding fortified towns. Through traditional and innovative immersive displays, visitors can experience the colourful history and various architectural styles of this fort, together with staggering examples of artillery.

Inquisitor's Palace
The Inquisitor’s Palace situated in the heart of Birgu is one of the very few surviving buildings of its kind.

Throughout its five centuries of history, the Maltese Inquisitor’s Palace, always hosted high-ranking officials representing the main powers on the island, who therefore ensured its survival.

Mgr Pietro Dusina arrived in Malta in 1574 as the first General Inquisitor and apostolic delegate of the Maltese Islands. The Grand Master offered him the unused palace as an official residence.

This architectural gem presents an exclusive experience. Visitors can explore the historic reconstructions of the domestic kitchen area, the sophisticated ambience of the piano nobile, the private quarters, the austere setting of the Holy Office Tribunal, the prison complex and the torture chamber.

The building houses the National Museum of Ethnography with permanent displays on Malta’s religious traditions as consolidated by the Inquisition.

Malta Maritime Museum
The Malta Maritime Museum, housed within the Old Naval bakery, charts 7000 years of Malta’s maritime history, from prehistory to the present day. Numerous exhibited artefacts highlight the different epochs of the islands’ history and illustrate the global nature of seafaring and its impact on Maltese society.

The museum boasts a unique collection of over 20,000 artefacts belonging to Malta’s Maritime past.

Visitors of this museum can enjoy some unique artefacts which include: the largest known roman anchor in the world, the earliest known ex-voto on the island, the largest ship model belonging to the Order of St. John, the largest collection of cannons on the island, the Napoleonic figurehead of the 110 gun ship HMS Hibernia, a 1950s working marine steam engine, and a collection of more than 60 boats.

MUZA - The Malta National Community Art Museum
The Malta National Community Art Museum collection is laid out in sections inspired by stories grouped into four main themes: The Mediterranean, Europe, Empire and The Artist. The display is surprisingly unusual as it juxtaposes old masters with contemporary artworks, groups artworks and objects in ways similar to contemporary art installations, presents techniques on videos and interactive experiences complement objects and artworks on display.

Key works include those by Southern Italian artist Mattia Preti, British 20th century artist Victor Pasmore and Malta’s own top 20th century sculptor Antonio Sciortino.

The building which houses the museum is the historic seat of the Italian knights of the Order of St. John with a 500 year old history and is in itself a prime historic site, meticulously restored to expose historic layers. Main historic features such as the main staircase have been rebuilt in contemporary material.

National Museum of Natural History
The National Museum of Archaeology housed at the Auberge de Provence in Republic Street, Valletta, is renowned as one of the most elaborately decorated Baroque buildings in the city. It was constructed in 1571 to serve as the official residence of the Knights of the Order of St. John who originated from Provence in France. The sheer elegance of the time is still much alive in the richly painted walls and wooden beamed ceiling of the Gran Salon.

A visit to this museum offers a spectacular range of artefacts which date back to Malta’s Neolithic Period (5000 BC) up to the Phoenician Period (400 BC). Some of the most notable artefacts are: the earliest prehistoric tools and artistic representations, the ‘Sleeping Lady’ (from the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum), the ‘Venus of Malta’ (from Ħaġar Qim Temples), the Bronze Age daggers (from Tarxien Temples), and the Horus & Anubis pendant, together with the anthropomorphic sarcophagus, both of which date to the Phoenician Period.

Ta’ Bistra Catacombs
Ta’ Bistra Catacombs located half way between the ancient town of Melite and the once-important harbour of Salina, are the largest set of tombs and catacombs which are accessible beyond the confines of the ancient city of the Island.

They were first recorded in the late 1800s but were only investigated in 1933 by Captain Charles Zammit, before part of the site was covered over by a new road leading down to Burmarrad. Further studies in 2004, 2013, and 2014, have brought the site back to life with new discoveries and hence, new interpretations.

Ta' Hagrat Temples
Ta’ Ħaġrat Temples are set in the heart of Mġarr in Malta and forms part of the group of megalithic temples which have been inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Ta’ Ħaġrat is home to two well-preserved structures. Renowned for its monumental doorway and facade, this is the only temple site that is built entirely of local Upper Coralline Limestone. Other features include a bench running along the facade’s length, as well as a courtyard surrounded by a raised stone kerb. This space provides entry to three chambers through megalithic doorways.

The larger of the two buildings dates from the earliest phases of megalithic construction – the Ġgantija phase (3600 – 3200 BC).

One of the oldest free-standing monuments of such scale and complexity in the world, Ta’ Ħaġrat invites the visitor to better appreciate the genius of local megalithic construction, in a time when workers were limited to stone, bone and wooden tools.

Skorba Temples
Skorba is situated in the hamlet of Żebbiegħ on the outskirts of Mġarr in Malta. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its archaeological value and to its contribution in the understanding of Maltese history. It is also one of the oldest free-standing monuments of such scale and complexity in the world.

The temple is unique for providing crucial evidence concerning the domestic aspect of the prehistoric people, including the temple builders themselves. The site contains the remains of two megalithic temple structures; one of which dates from the earliest phase of megalithic construction – the Ġgantija Phase, while the other was built at a later stage in prehistory, the Tarxien Phase.

The remains of several domestic huts were also discovered at this site. Some structures date from before the Temple Period (i.e. before 3600 BC), and therefore, are amongst the oldest constructed structures on the Maltese Islands.

Tarxien Temples
Tarxien Temples consist of a complex of four megalithic structures built between 3800 and 2200 BC, and re-used between 2400 and 1500 BC. The temples are inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The earliest structure located at the easternmost end of the site and built sometime between 3600 and 3200 BC, survives only to near ground level although its five-apse plan is still clearly visible. The South Temple is the most highly decorated with its relief sculpture and the lower part of a colossal statue of a skirted figure. Remains of cremation found at the centre of the South Temple reveal that the site was re-used as a Bronze Age cremation cemetery, between 2400 and 1500 BC. The East Temple, with its well-cut slab walls and ‘oracle’ holes, were built between 3150 and 2500 BC. The Central Temple was constructed with its unique six-apse plan and contains evidence of arched roofing.

An elevated walkway allows visitors to look at the prehistoric remains from a unique viewpoint.

Fortifications Interpretation Centre
The Fortifications Interpretation Centre is temporarily closed.

Malta was always given the key role in the development of the European history due to its geographical position at the centre of the Mediterranean, linking Europe with North Africa and the East. This advantage led Malta to becoming central to territorial wars of several rulers.

The Fortress Builders Fortifications Interpretation Centre brings Malta's defensive structures and buildings together under one roof in an interactive way, bringing to light the architectural features of these fortifications surrounding Malta's harbours and strategic cities.

Fort St Elmo - National War Museum
Visitors to Fort St. Elmo can enjoy a twofold experience. Originally intended as a war machine, the fort was built in a strategic location to face and hold back the menacing Ottoman attacks. This dominating position now offers unobstructed panoramic views of the harbours and the surrounding towns and villages. The fort also hosts the National War Museum which houses a superb collection of artefacts that go back to prehistoric times.

Constructed by the Order of St. John in 1552, the star-shaped fort was built according to the cutting edge of fortress design. The fort played a crucial role in the eventful Great Siege of 1565 which saw the mighty forces of the Ottoman Empire and the Order of St. John come head to head.

Among the most notable artefacts in the Museum, one finds: military armour of the Order of St. John and the Ottoman Turks, the Gloster Sea Gladiator N5520 FAITH, Roosevelt’s Jeep ‘Husky’, and Malta’s award for gallantry, the George Cross.

Reliving The Sacra Infermeria
The Knights of St. John are famous for repelling invasion and their military exploits. But their origins were actually those of peace and caring for the sick. This noble past is revealed in a tour of “La Sacra Infermeria” (Holy Infirmary) with a professional guide, guided in English.

The Sacra Infermeria has seen over 400 years of vivid human history as generations of patients have passed through its doors.

By 1787, the various wards of the Infirmary accommodated 563 beds – a number which could be increased in times of emergency to 914. This vast 155-metre long room with its magnificent timber ceiling is known as the Great Ward and was once the longest hospital ward in Europe.

When the islands fell under British control a new era in the Infirmary’s history began and in September 1800 it became known as the General Hospital. During the First World War the sick and wounded poured into the islands from the battlefields of Europe earning Malta the title “Nurse of the Mediterranean”.
