At the Dolmen Resort Hotel in Saint Paul Bay on the island of Malta, you’ll find a resort with a megalithic temple situated in its garden, right by the swimming pool. It’s a magnificent mix of luxury relaxation and ancient archeology, and the only one of its kind.
Buġibba Temple was discovered by the Maltese archaeologist Themistocles Zammit in the 1920s after he noticed the large stones in what was then a field. The temple was built with coralline limestone during the Tarxien era of Maltese prehistory, which ranged from approximately 3150 to 2500 BC. Unfortunately, agricultural activities later destroyed much of the structure.
