22/9 Autumn Equinox

Date 22/9/2021

To celebrate the start of Autumn, during the Autumn Equinox, Heritage Malta will be organising guided tours at Mnajdra on the 21st and 22nd of September.

At sunrise, on the first day of Autumn the sun can be seen rising in particular alignment with the megalithic site of Mnajdra. During the guided tour of Mnajdra visitors will view the first rays of the rising sun light up the central passage in the South building, just as it did from over 5000 years ago.

A tour will also be given of the surrounding Natura 2000 site and the Central and East buildings at Mnajdra. Complimentary coffee and snacks will be offered to participants before the tour.

To guarantee that all visitors get to observe the rising sun from inside these sites whilst respecting social distancing measures, a very limited number of tickets are available on both dates of this event.

Participants for these events are to meet at 06:15am outside the Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra Visitor Centre.

Attendees must wear a face mask and respect social distancing measures.

Presentation of a Vaccine Certificate OR negative rapid test result acquired within 24 hours OR negative PCR result acquired within 72 hours and an identification document is needed for all wishing to join.

Sorry but this event is fully booked!
