XAGHRA – Stone Circle

An underground cemetary, set inside a system of natural caves, just below the surface of the hill-top overlooking Ggantija, some 300 metres to its west. The cemetary was formalised by a boundary of megalithic and interlocking standing stones [hence its name], with a monumental entrance on the eastern side facing the Ggantija temples. In the centre of Xaghra there would have been a large space for the arrangement of a circle of monumental standing stones – below ground level.
