An ancient mythology of the inhabitants of Gozo, it says that once these Ggantija Temples were built by giants, because of the considerable volume of these. Each block can also be up to 5 meters long and weigh up to 50 tons, it is understandable with these data to give life to rumors that today are only mythology.
