Project Description

Siġġiewi + Quarry + Ħaġar Qim Megalithic temples + Blue Grotto +
Marsaxlokk fishing village.

A tour of the south of the island begins with a visit to the village of Siġġiewi where we will walk along the winding streets and visit the late 17th century parish church of St. Nicholas, as well as the Chapel of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist built by the Knights of Malta! We will visit an old limestone quarry, turned into an interactive museum. There you will learn about the traditional Maltese stone, which the locals have used as a building material for thousands of years.

Then we will head to Ħaġar Qim, the megalithic temples located on a hill in a very picturesque place against the backdrop of the sea and the uninhabited island of Filfla.

We will then proceed to the tiny hamlet of Wied iz-Zurrieq, where you will have the opportunity to take a sea trip on fishing boats and admire the Blue Grotto (the boat trip is not included in the tour price as it depends on the weather).

Lunch will be at one of the local Maltese restaurants.

After lunch we will visit Marsaxlokk – a picturesque fishing village where the largest fish market in Malta is organized on Sundays. You can walk along it, discover traditional products and admire the many colourful fishing boats.

Duration – 8 hours with a guide without entrance tickets or with entrance
tickets, if desired.
