Visiting the two temples Ta’ Ħaġrat and Skorba belonging to the UNESCO World Heritage Site ‘Megalithic temples of Malta’ is like searching for treasures. Both are rather small megalithic temples hidden in villages belonging to Mġarr. Ta’ Ħaġrat is one of the oldest temple sites on Malta created from 3600 BC on and the bigger one of the two.
It can be found south of the village in a dead-end street called Triq San Pietru. The temple of Skorba is 1,5 kilometer away in Żebbiegħ. At both sites there is staff checking your tickets, but no chance to buy a ticket. They tell you in which shops in the area tickets are sold, but it’s better to buy a multisite pass from Malta Heritage before getting there.
