Ghar Dalam Cave literally translated to ‘Cave of Darkness’ where many bones of extinct animals were trapped inside. To this effect became extinct on the island at the end of the ice age.

The Megalithic Temples of Malta are among the most ancient religious sites on Earth. Two of them are the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra temples. Described by UNESCO as "unique architectural masterpieces”, they have been included in the World Heritage List since 1981.
A qualified tourist guide will take you first to the interpretation center and then visit both temples, which are very close to each other. They enjoy magnificent open sea views, which is a beautiful experience.
A very interesting visit and an original park in the village of Siggiewi. This old limestone quarry, which is a precious natural resource, has been utilised to construct the island’s houses, palaces, fortifications, statues and many objects useful to live with.
You will find a museum, an audio-visual theatre, a cross section through a farmhouse, a tearoom for relaxation, it is the place where you will learn many new things about the various uses of limestone in everyday life since thousands of years back.
A highly recommended 25 minutes to the Blue Grotto natural caves where between sunrise and 13:00 is the best time for the natural reflections of deep blue colours once inside the large cave.
Tickets are not included with the tours as these are bought from the little inlet ticket boot at Wied Iz-Zurrieq just before embarking on the small fishing boats. The wearing of life jackets is obligatory.
The tour coach will take you to Marsaxlokk village which is very popular as a Sunday morning market. It is the biggest port for fishermen where you will see many boats in different colours lining the bay.
It is pleasant and quiet, walking along the promenade, possibly seeing fishermen mending their nets or repairs a boat. Several restaurants and cafes line the coast. The parish church lies at the far end of the small square. Several houses are still the old original ones with aged limestone and coloured aperture. A quiet rural village to visit.
