Malta is home to some of the world's oldest known Neolithic temples, and later this month, as Winter unfolds into Spring, Heritage Malta is set to organize unique guided tours in celebration of the Spring Equinox at the Mnajdra Temples.
Located on the southern coast of our isle and just a 20-minute drive from Locanda La Gelsomina, the Mnajdra Temples are believe to have been constructed around 3600 years BC. During the Spring Equinox (20-21 March) the sun rises in line with the main doorway of the South Temple, passing through the central corridor to the innermost apse.
Although there are no written records to indicate the purpose of these temples, recent research indicates that they were primarily a solar year calendar and an astronomical observatory.
This is the perfect opportunity to book a suite at Locanda La Gelsomina and use the promotional code 'HIS' when booking direct to benefit from a unique package. Tickets to the Spring Equinox event may be purchased from Heritage Malta here.
