Upper Barrakka Gardens - Review

The Upper Barrakka Gardens are an exquisite site in Valletta. These charming gardens are a great place to take a refreshing break from all the sightseeing that you will be doing during your trip to the city. The gardens are a great setting for destination weddings and proposals as well.

This place is a stunning view point. You will be able to avail spectacular views of Valletta’s glorious harbor as well as the busy city from this vantage point. The cannons that fire from the Saluting Battery are not to be missed. Beautiful stone monuments and structures decorate the place. The Gardens may be small but their picturesque setting is certainly one to be experienced and a view from the top is worth having while in Valletta.

Upper Barrakka Gardens, Valletta Reviews

  • Great place to visit to see nice views of the grand harbor and the 3 cities. It is also a great place to relax. The place will be crowded in the afternoon. There is also a cafeteria inside. From the barrakka the Saluting Battery can be seen clearly.

  • Lovely place. Beautiful flowers and plants, lovely fountain, and a fantastic view of the port, where you might have the chance to see some huge ships moored in Valletta port. There's even a bar. Went there every time i finished my work day there.

  • A great public garden for many reasons: it has got the proper scale, not very small nor too large; not fenced but rather semi-enclosed on most of its sides by a double arcade and a few structures; and through the arcade it opens up onto a spectacular view over the Grand Harbour. It's nice to rest there on a bench overlooking the central pond and watch the beautiful flowers and the people pass by. There is also access to public toilets.

  • Amazing garden in Valetta. I would say that it is simply world class. The location is one thing but the view is absolutely mind blowing. There are some options for drink or snack... The place even has toilets in the corner! I don't get so easily amazed but the view is absolutely mind blowing.

  • Very beautiful gardens, stunning views and easy access. It’s not too big that you can get lost but big enough you don’t have to fight to get a view. Lovely cafe inside. Presented wonderfully
