Prehistoric Malta


Malta is the heartland of the ancient Mediterranean. The mysterious peoples of the Neolithic and the Copper Age erected a considerable amount of megalithic structures that are today considered among the most ancient religious sites on Earth. Visit the cave of Ghar Dalam to see the fossil bones of dwarf elephants, hippopotami, and other special species. Drive towards the Wied iz-Zurrieq where there will be the possibility (weather permitting) to take a boat trip to the Blue Grotto.
Tour ends with the visit of the Hagar Qim Archaeological park -a UNESCO World heritage site that predates the famous Pyramids in Egypt by a thousand years. The temples were places of worship believed to have been erected for the Goddess of Fertility also known as the FAT Lady. Botero's inspiration - who knows?
