TAS-SILĠ ANCIENT TEMPLE

Triq Xrob l-Għaġin, Marsaxlokk, Malta

Tas-Silġ Ancient Temple

Tas-Silġ is a multi-period sanctuary site located in the south-eastern part of the island of Malta, close to Marsaxlokk harbour. The site has a long history of antiquarian research and archaeological excavation.

Originally a prehistoric temple, turned into a dwelling in the Bronze Age, transformed into Juno's Temple in Phoenician and Roman times, and adapted to a Christian basilica in the Byzantine period, Tas-Silġ has one of the longest histories in Malta.

Today its religious connection lingers on in its name, adopted from a church called Our Lady of the Snows (Madonna ta' Tas-Silġ), situated some 100 metres away.

This site is open by appointment only.
