14/25.- Malta, Maltese cats at Tarxien temples


And now I invite you to discover the Maltese archipelago through its archeological sites, the megalithic temples at Tarxien, Hagar Qim, Mnajdra and Ggantija.

The Megalithic Temples were built between 3800-2000 BC and are the earliest free standing structures in the world. The Maltese temple culture is testimony of the local genius of its artists. They have monumental proportions and a remarkable architectural design.

Here you can see Maltese cats at Tarxien; I filmed them because it seems that felines have a natural fascination with ruins. (I first noticed cats predilection for archeological sites, in Rome at the Forum) Maybe there is a common trait they share: cats and temples are always mysterious.
