The cave contains the bone remains of animals that were stranded and subsequently became extinct in Malta at the end of the Last Glacial Maximum. It has lent its name to the Għar Dalam phase in Maltese prehistory, and is viewed as one of Malta's most important national monuments.The cave contains…
Għar Dalam means 'Cave of darkness' in Maltese. The cave is 145-metre cavity of which the first 50 metres are publicly accessible. The animal bones found within are evident proof that Malta was once linked to Sicily and to mainland Europe by a land bridge.
The atmospheric experience of Għar Dalam cave itself. The stalagmites and stalactites. The elephant molars and hippopotamus tusks in the adjacent museum. The jaw of an extinct brown bear. The remains of a unique breed of deer that evolved goat-like feet to negotiate Malta’s stony terrain.

“Situated only a short walk from Ħaġar Qim, the magnificent temple of Mnajdra is rumoured to heal illnesses and promote fertility. Built in coralline limestone and partly decorated with spiral carvings, archaeologists have found an abundance of flint knives and animal bones here, suggesting that the temple was once used for religious ceremonies and sacrificial rites.”

“The Catacombs of St. Paul comprise an underground Roman necropolis dating back to the 4th century AD. Romans deemed it unclean to bury the deceased within city limits, so this catacomb complex was most likely used as the final resting place for the dead from surrounding cities like Mdina. Descending into the tombs may send a chill up your spine as your eyes dart toward the loculi (wall recesses). Some are small, others large to accommodate the corpses of children and adults. Numerous family crypts have also been discovered. There is room for about 1,000 bodies in total.”

“Just about 9km from Valletta, the capital of Malta, will take you to St. Julian’s and Paceville – the place where life happens after 10 pm. Possibly the busiest place on the whole island and as well where most tourist flocks their way in for some fun.”
