Ta Hagrat Megalithic Site

Message Vendor

Discovered in 1917, the archaeological Site of Ta' Hagrat, is situated at the heart of the rural village of Mgarr in the northwest of Malta. Offering panoramic views of the Maltese countryside, Ta Hagrat forms part of a group of local megalithic sites that were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1992. These buildings represent a milestone in humankind's technological evolution. 

Ta Hagrat consists of two megalithic structures. The larger and older of the two has a semi-circular facade with a monumental doorway, leading to a rectangular space measuring approximately 2.5m by 4.5m with semi-circular rooms on three sides. In prehistory, the eastern room was modified to make space for the smaller structure., which has a similar plan but was built with smaller stones. Ta' Hagrat is built entirely of local Upper Coralline Limestone. 

The are in front of this entrance and facade is ideal for small events, with both views of the megalithic structure and the valley beyond.
