    Ggantija's legend

    Ggantija Temples

    Favorite thing: In Maltese, Ggantija means "belonging to the giants".

    A local legend is saying that a giant called Sansuna carried the stones to build the temples on her head from a site located far way.

    And it seems that the work of the giant was so good that the temples survived extraordinarily well and the walls in places still stand to a height of 7 meters.
