Expert review of Hal Saflieni Hypogeum
This extraordinary place is thought to be where the people who built the Tarxien temples (and maybe other temples too) buried their dead. A labyrinth of chambers in three underground layers, it is all cut out of solid rock and yet the ‘rooms’ echo the architecture of the above-ground temples. A fragile UNESCO World Heritage Site, visitors are now limited to 10 per hour and lights only come on as you pass (adding to the atmosphere). There is an excellent audio commentary - as well as a human being - guide you round. I have visited the Hypogeum several times and am awed on each occasion.
Admission for adults is 20 euros, children aged 12-17 and over-60s are 15 euros, and children aged 6-11 cost 12 euros. Children under 6 not admitted.
