Visit Għar Dalam and Borġ in-Nadur for free this Sunday

Heritage Malta is opening Għar Dalam and Borġ in-Nadur Temple Site free of charge this Sunday, 22nd July.

Għar Dalam’s relevance as a prehistoric site was discovered in the latter half of the 19th century following a series of excavations unearthing animal bones as well as human remains and artefacts. Today the cave still hosts a variety of animals, some of which are of great interest, including one endemic species found nowhere else. The site consists of a cave, a Victorian style exhibition and a didactic display, as well as a garden planted with indigenous plants and trees.

Borġ in-Nadur Temple Site, opened recently to the general public, was in use during both the Temple period and the Bronze Age. Excavated in the 1920s, this site yielded information which helped our understanding of facets of Maltese prehistory which had hitherto remained problematic, such as differences between the Temple period and the Bronze Age. The four apsed temple is fronted by a large enclosed area which is unique for such building.

During the open day guided tours will be held at both sites. Four guided tours will be held at Borġ in-Nadur at 9.30am, 10.30am, 2.30pm and 3.30pm while three guided tours will be held at Għar Dalam at 9.00am, 12.00pm and 2.30pm.

Għar Dalam and Borġ in-Nadur will be open between 0900hrs and 1700hrs, last admission at 1630hrs.
