Today was my last guided tour. Our first stop was the Limestone Heritage. It’s an old quarry that’s been turned into a museum and you can see each step of how working with limestone has changed during the ages. The museum is made with lots of love. It’s a family business so everything is very detailed.
Sadly, it was another rainy day today. Usually we would have gone on a boat tour into the blue grotto but we were only able to see it from little further away because the sea was to rough to go on a boat.
The next stop was the Ħaġar Qim Temples. Ancient temple ruins that were dated from 3200 BC. The temples are huge and one stone could weigh to 20 tons! If you stand if front of these old temples its just an insane feeling because knowing the people did everything by hand and had to lift everything up by hand.
After lunch where we had pasta with salmon and another fish as main course we went to the old fisher village Marsaxlokk again. I was really glad I already went there last Sunday because today everything was flooded and there was no market. But I got the chance to take better pictures of the luzzu boats with eyes.
Last stop was the Ghar Dalam Cave. There were old elephant, hippopotamus, bear and deer skeletons found. The theory is, that the tunnel was way longer than today and that when the tunnel collapse water flooded the cave and the animals were pulled into the cave. Love, Ann
