Borġ in-Nadur boasts a unique location, situated high between two valleys and overlooking St George’s Bay in Birżebbuġa. It is also 500m away from the prehistoric site of Għar Dalam. The site was in use during both the late Temple Period (3,150 – 2,500 BC) and the Bronze Age (2,400 – 700 BC).

Excavated in the 1920s by eminent archaeologist Margaret Murray, the site of Borġ in-Nadur yielded information that helped our understanding of facets of Maltese prehistory which had until then remained problematic, such as the differences between the Temple Period and the Bronze Age.

The remains and the items which were retrieved during the excavations, are to this day still being analysed by researchers, using techniques which were not available to archaeologists of decades past. The four apsed temple found within the site is fronted by a large enclosed area which is unique for such buildings.
