Malta, Southern Europe

Malta facts and history in brief

Hagar Qim is a site of some 'Copper Age' prehistoric temples.
Dating from as early as 3800 BC, Hagar Qim and the other Neolithic temples on Malta are the oldest known human structures in the world.
This megalithic temple complex is adorned with carved animals and idols, sacrificial altars and oracular chambers, all executed with nothing more than flint and obsidian tools.
Giant limestone slabs form a series of ovals laid out in a pattern that some archaeologists have compared to Mother Goddess figurines found on the site.
The view of the Mediterranean and the nearby island of Filfla is one of the best in Malta.
Hagar Qim and its neighbour, the Mnajdra temple, are near the village of Qrendi, about 15km (9mi) southwest of Valletta.
