Gigantia Temples- Gozo

2018 – We catch Bus 222 from Sliema for the ferry to Gozo, about an hour to arrive to the ferry. 460 Euro return. The Ferry crossing took 25 minutes. Fabulous views of the coast along the way. The Bus is there as soon as we dock. Our hour drive to the Temples gave us a chance to see much of the island.

Visitor Center

At the Visitor Center we see many displays of artifacts dating back to around 3000 to 2400 BC. The Information describes this as second second oldest archological ruin on Earth.

Xaghra Stone Circle

We follow the trail trough the stone walled farmland to the Circle of Stone (not an actual stone circle). We learn it is actually a prehistoric burial site.

Ggantija Temples

The ancient stone rooms and unusual covered cave like areas are very interesting. Tall stone pillars dating back thousands of years, are still standing.
