Wardija ta’ San Gorg settlement 

Promontory at Wardija ta’ San Gorg

The crossing of the Maghlaq fault with a north-east trending fault in the area of il-Wardija ta’ San Gorg has resulted in a promontory which is certainly one of the best view points on the islands.  Exposure of the junction of the Blue Clay and the Upper Coralline limestone resulted in a number of springs beneath this promontory.

These springs together with the easily defensible promontory, were noted by the Borg in-Nadur folk who transformed the area into a Bronze age settlement.  One can still note several features of this Village, namely the silo storage pits, the remains of a cyclopean wall and hut foundations.
