Upper Barrakka Gardens, Valletta Reviews
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.
Outstanding view of the grand harbour, we'll maintained and clean gardens. Unfortunately got there too late for the war rooms or saluting battery but the gardens on their own made up the trip to the top. Highly recommend if you want some amazing photo opportunities of the grand harbour
The Upper Barrakka Gardens are a beautiful public garden in Valletta and offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour. The garden is located on the upper tier of St. Peter & Paul Bastion and you can see the Saluting Battery. In the park there are several memorial monuments of prominent people. For example Winston Churchill. Best time to visit is when the the sun goes down because of the great view over the grand harbor and the "three cities" on the south side of Valetta.
Lovely with spectacular views if the grand harbour. Beautiful garden, lovely flowers. A peaceful place to spend some time with all the family.
Great views over the harbour and city. The lift is worth taking: €1 up and free to go down. They have a daily cannon firing along with war rooms and tours. The little cafe/bar in the gardens is quite reasonable with only a slight premium for its location. If the weather is good, try their Aperol Spritz. Very refreshing!
