Heritage Malta will further enrich the visitor’s experience at the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum by means of gift vouchers that will be given to all those who visit this site during December and January.

As Heritage Malta’s Chief Executive Officer, Noel Zammit, remarked, “The Hypogeum only allows a small number of visitors every hour, with a maximum of eight tours every day. In normal circumstances one must book a visit weeks or even months in advance.

Currently it is easier to visit and to take the opportunity to become better acquainted with this unique part of our heritage. Heritage Malta has therefore come up with the initiative to enhance accessibility to this site while increasing the value of the visit through gift vouchers for every visitor.”

The deepest of the three levels, known as the Lower Level, is accessed down seven steps from the chamber which is popularly known as the ‘Holy of Holies’.

Visitors who are Heritage Malta members will be given a €20 voucher; adult visitors will receive a €15 voucher; students and senior citizens will get a €10 voucher; children will be given a €5 voucher; and visitors buying last minute tickets will be given a €15 voucher.

Hypogeum tickets can be purchased from all Heritage Malta sites and museums or online here.

During December and January the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum will be open from Monday to Sunday from 9.00am till 5.00pm. All visits are conducted in strict adherence to Public Health regulations related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
