Santa Verna 
Qortin l-Imdawwar
Stratified pottery has revealed that the first use of this area goes back to the Ghar Dalam phase (5200 - 4500 BC). It is however to the ensuing period that the main remains belong. Three horizontal upright megaliths bounded at their eastern end by three horizontal megaliths are all that one can see today of a trefoil megalithic temple. Unusual was the occurence of cobble wall found all around the temple, perhaps an architectural mainifestation of the 'sacredness' of the ground immediately surrounding the megalithic remains.On site a number of very fine flint scrapers and knives were found. Also of note is the discovery of the remains of a burial of unknown date that was found on the temple period deposits.
