  • Quieter than the upper level gardens, with views across the water and also a great view of the Siege Bell. There is good seating and shade and these gardens are a lovely place to sit for a while.

  • This was a short rest for us on our walk around the outside of Valetta and we enjoyed the view and the shade.

  • Very clean and nice place. The monument is very well preserved. Since this stone deteriorates very quickly through corrosion, it looks good. Our favourite is Enea's statuešŸ˜ There is also a war monument as in all the island. Nice point of view also.
  • These need to be visited. Views are amazing. Parking is easy to be found. Lots to do around the area. But a lot of walking to do. They have 2 areas. Upper and lower barrakka. I'd say give yourself 3-4 hours to do everything comfortably in the whole area without rushing.
