The Barrakka Lift is a lift in Valletta, Malta which was constructed in 2012, on the site of a previous lift which had operated from 1905 to 1973 and which was demolished in 1983. It is located inside the ditch of the fortifications of Valletta, and it links Lascaris Wharf to St. Peter and Paul Bastion and the Upper Barrakka Gardens. It therefore allows access from the Grand Harbour to the city.

  • 1 euro is nothing but do you really think that a short lift ride is chargeable when there is no real choice for seniors!!

  • Extremely useful way to descend from the city to the waterfront ! It costs one euro. Also very useful in the opposite direction from the waterfront to the city level Barakka Gardens

  • This would be one of the coolest things ever… except the windows are filthy. Could be such a gorgeous little attraction to tick off the list. You had one job Barrakka Lift…
  • Super convenient to go from water front to the upper gardens where you can see one of the best views of the Grand harbour. Costs €1 but totally worth it! The staff was friendly and the elevator was clean.
