The site of Skorba lies in the hamlet of Żebbiegħ, on the outskirts of Mġarr, overlooking the nearby valley and providing a spectacular view of the surrounding landscape.

 

Reasons to Visit

  1. A Maltese Prehistoric Temple site inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
  2. One of the oldest free-standing monuments of such scale and complexity in the world.
  3. The only megalithic Temple site in Malta to have been excavated in living memory using a scientific method.
  4. It is built partly of local Upper Coralline limestone, and partly of local Globigerina Limestone, which variation allows the visitor to distinguish between different phases of construction of the temple.
  5. Its location in Żebbiegħ offers not only a magnificent view of rural Maltese environment, but puts the visitor into the same landscape setting that surrounded the prehistoric temple builders.
