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.
