Ministers José Herrera and Owen Bonnici have announced the establishment of an inter-ministerial committee after the discovery of a Neolithic temple at Xrobb l-Għaġin.
Originally, the discovery was made over 100 years ago by the architect Carmel Rizzo and Dr Temi Zammit in 1913 when they visited the site. However, since then no further traces could be found but have now recently been re-discovered.
The two Ministers agreed that drastic action needs to be taken to safeguard the remains of this temple as they are in a perilous state at the edge of the cliffs at Xrobb l-Għaġin.
The Committee will be led by Anthony Pace and has been established to give advice to the two Ministers to help protect this historical site which is a protected site. The committee’s main aim will be that of recovering and preserving the remains of this Neolithic temple.
