Limestone Heritage Park and Gardens Tours

Limestone Heritage Park and Gardens
Limestone is the 22 million-year-old rock on which Malta's history is built – literally. And it is this material that serves as the inspiration for an informative look at the history of the island, as well as a visit that is so much more than visitors bargain for. 

Just outside of Siggiewi is the Limestone Heritage Park and Gardens, built in a quarry. A tour of the park takes visitors through the history of Malta via a walk through the limestone structures in the park. There are also limestone sculpting classes, a chance to observe masons at work, and even a petting zoo for families with children. When the location is not being used for private functions, there are Folklore nights featuring traditional food and music.

Practical Info
