The sheer age of this place is amazing. To think that it's been standing there through so much of our history, an un changing product of human invention and graft is astounding, particularly when you can walk around it, inside it and run your hands over it's walls. The dimpled decoration inside one part begs a finger pushed into the wee holes. How many other people have done the same as me over the last 5000 years?
I'd love to be there on a solstice or an equinox.
The walk down from Hagar Qim is a long and steep one if you have mobility issues but location is so beautiful it could be worth the long slow walk back.
I didn't find the cover too annoying but I can see that it has significantly changed the feel of the place.
The visitor centre is modern, informative and fun. There was a guided tour going on when we were there which sounded a bit fierce but that might just be a Maltese accent.
