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.
The Ggantija site is opened from Monday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last admission 4:30 p.m.).
The way from the entrance to the site goes near the North Cave and behind the temples.
The ticket office is near the temples.
Favorite thing: For the visitors that don't have a guide book and know nothing about Ggantija, on the site there is a board written in English and Maltese supplying some information about the temples, the history and features.
Favorite thing: Ggantija became the first of the Maltese megalithic temples to be inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1980.
