The Ġgantija Temples in Xagħra, Gozo, are one of the most important archaeological sites in the Maltese Islands. Their listing on the UNESCO World Heritage List makes them a site of universal significance. The site consists of a megalithic complex of two temples surrounded by a massive common boundary wall, and raised on a high terrace wall. The origins of Ġgantija date back to between 3600 and 3200 B.C., with the larger temple being the first to be built.
One of the most striking features of the entire complex is the enormity of the megaliths in which it is constructed. Some of the megaliths exceed five metres in length and weigh over fifty tons.
