Hypogeeus Hal Saflieni
Malta, Valletta

The burial of Hypogee, or Hypogee Hal Saflieni, is named after the street where it was discovered at the beginning of the last century. And outside - a simple, unremarkable house ... Hypogeus translated from Latin means "underground dwelling". Hypogeus was built as an underground temple of death with an intricate system of levels, moves and halls. Skeletons of 30 thousand people of the Late Neolithic era and various artifacts were discovered in Hypogeea. Now historians insist on the recognition of it as the 8th wonder of the world, because in Malta, long before Stonehenge and the era of the Egyptian pyramids, a developed civilization existed. Near the floor of the last hall of the underground Hypogeea, on the third and last of the official sublevels, there are a number of burial chambers. All this is an underground necropolis.
