Upper Barrakka Gardens, Valletta Reviews - Write a Review
Good place to visit with friends and family. Awesome experience. Set at the highest point, the city walls of the barrakka garden offers an amazing view to see the firing in the grand Harbour. One can also have the panoramic view of the 3 cities, shipyard and the harbour. Before it was used as a line of defense. Nowadays it is used to welcome ships into the harbour. The firing is done at noon and at 4pm to help the ship masters set there watch according to the time.
Great views across bay. Lovely place to sit. Very peaceful even when it's busy. Some great historical places nearby too. Lift to harbour and some questionable restaurants.
sensational views of the 3 cities, and the saluting garden is interesting with live gun demonstrations and firing. €1 for the elevator (or included in ferry price from Birgu) makes it well worth a visit. Simply beautiful
A must see if in Valetta! It is a well maintained garden space with plenty of seating and public restrooms. From the viewing platform you have a great view of the 3 cities and the harbour. Each day, they also do a historical cannon shooting, well worth a watch.
Beautiful gardens with plenty of shade and public benches make for a great place to relax and have a rest from exploring Valletta. The views from the terrace overlooking the battery are also lovely as you can look out to sea as well as into the harbour.
