Today we walked down this south-west coast of Malta. (Photo taken on our flight home)S1057385 copy

We went by bus to the Dingli Cliffs, where a young lady was carrying the same leaflet as us, so we walked together.

11.2m = 7 miles, a lovely walk with wonderful views. It was very hot, but there was a welcome breeze and it was mainly downhill.

We took a detour to two prehistoric temples (entry fee €9 adults)

The upper one is Ħaġar Qim, built 3600-3200 BC, much older than Stonehenge (about 2500Bc)

How did they quarry, shape, move and arrange these huge stones????
