Malta temple tours are a must for anyone who travels to this
beautiful Mediterranean island. Malta and Gozo are home to seven
megalithic temples, all of which are designated as world heritage

older than the Stonehenge and the Pyramids. It is also home to more
than thirty other temples, all of which reflect Malta's rich past.

they did it, why there are just so many of them in a little area,
and what these were actually for.

inexpensive Maltese bus system plus a ferry trip to the island of
Gozo. When going to Malta temple tours, it may not be practical to
