Get ready for a history experience of a lifetime.
On Thursday, 11th July, Heritage Malta in collaboration with the Department of Classics and Archaeology at the University of Malta are providing the public with the opportunity to observe the archaeological investigations which are currently taking place at the site of Tas-Silġ in Marsaxlokk.
The site of Tas-Silġ is one of the most important archaeological sites in Malta and, possibly, in the Central Mediterranean. It contains the remains of more than 4000 years of structures, most of which used as religious temples. It is here that the famous temple of Ashtart mentioned by Cicero and despoiled by Caius Verres was located.
Tours will be every 30 minutes, starting at 9.00am and ending at 1.00pm (last tour starts at 12.30pm) – most importantly admission is free of charge.
