The Ġgantija Temples UNESCO World Heritage Site is a unique prehistoric monument, situated at the centre of an extraordinary archaeological landscape, the Xagħra plateau on the island of Gozo. Ġgantija consists of two temple units enclosed within a single megalithic wall. The monument was constructed over a period of several hundred years, the oldest part dating to c.3600BC. In Gozitan folklore, the Neolithic temples of Ġgantija were actually believed -on account of the size of their enormous megaliths- to have been constructed by a giantess fed on a diet of broad beans and honey. Ġgant is the Maltese word for giant.
