Tas-Silġ

Tas-Silġ is a hilltop located on the south-east coast of Malta. Tas-Silġ is an interesting sanctuary site. The site has been in use in several different periods, and its archaeological remains cover more than four thousand years, starting in the neolithic, up until the ninth century CE. The site holds a megalithic temple complex that dates back to the third millennium BCE, as well as a Phoenician and Punic sanctuary dedicated to the goddess Astarte. During the Roman era, the site was transformed into a religious complex dedicated to the goddess Juno. As such, it became a popular place of worship for people from all over the empire, helped by its central location in the Mediterranean.
