Along with other world-famous megaliths of Malta, Ta’ Hagrat temple complex is recognized as one of World Heritage Sites protected by UNESCO from 1992. For almost a hundred years the archeological site keeps up amazing visitors with enormous limestone blocks that were used by primitive tribes of the region for building the prehistoric sanctuary.
When discovering marks of history in the neighborhoods of Mosta, tourists are attracted by Ta' Bistra catacombs, a rather extensive underground system of tombs that survived about 1700-year loot and re-use. Though little known compared to other Maltese catacombs, this site is still exciting and intriguing, especially for those who are interested in history and archeology.
Tarxien is one of five Megalithic temples on Malta. Built in 2800 BC it is famous for the complexity of its construction, the abundance of prehistoric paintings, carvings and archaeological artifacts. Nowadays it is part of UNESCO world heritage and is protected by the international law.
