Ggantija Megalithic Temples
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Ggantija
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2018

I have read other reviews where visitors are disappointed with the temples, but we saw it as quite an experience.

The museum/information centre was really good in taking us through the different elements to the temples and the history of this ancient structure. This was our second visit and the info centre had not been completed on our first visit, so it was great to see it all finished.

It was fascinating to see how metal 'cages' are used to hold the structure up and a good idea with the walkways, so no more will be damaged by people keen to write their names on the stones.

There wasn't much to the museum shop, but the place itself is very interesting. Not sure if it is a great place to bring your children unless they are interested in archaeology.

Predating the Egyptian pyramids by a thousand years, the neolithic Ggantija Temples (Gigantic of Giant's Temples) show us how ingenious our ancestors were when it came to building places of worship. It is impossible to imagine how they were able to erect such colossal buildings with the tools they had at their disposal. Superb!

I’m normally a bit worried about museums or info centres that precede exhibits but this one was very good; modern, well signed and informative. Very useful before getting to see the temples themselves.
The temples were also signed with information boards which gave further appreciation of this amazing site.
The spheres that they believe were used to roll the slabs were in evidence too which kind of brought it to life for me.
Victorian era graffiti was a surprise but in its way added to the site.
Well worth the visit. There is also the windmill a few metres away that you can visit on a combined ticket which is fascinating too and explains the importance of grain, flour and bread to the islands.

We expected something bigger from the name of Ggantija, but still the impression is really great.
Really worth to see.

Good combination of the old and the new. Temples are very peaceful and well-preserved, maintaining and other-worldly, rugged feel. However, interactive exhibits really help set the scene and inject a sense of fun.
