  The sleeping lady. Is she asleep or dead?
by Dick33

The hypogeum is an underground temple for the dead and a burial chamber.
The guide told us it took over 1000 years to cut it out of the rock and talked us through the diferant chambers to the holy of holies.
You can't just go in you have to book in advance either from the Hypogeum or the Archaeology museum on Republic st Valletta or like I did online at
It is really worth going to.

Address: Buriel st Paola
Directions: Just off the main st.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
