  • Getting closer to real Valletta life? Go from Upper Barrakka Gardens direction North-East via San Ursula,San Paul's and/or Merchant Street (shopping area) to this lovely park. It only takes 10-15 min....  more »

  • Great garden with great views. Has some interesting monuments, and lovely benches to wind down on. A recommended bar/bistro just at the entrance for refreshments.
  • I really like this place and i prefer it over the Upper Barrakka Garden, which is full of tourist. Since this garden is smaller and a bit far from the main touristic attractions, there aren't lot of tourists/visitors here. It's very quite, beautiful and with a nice view to Vittoriosa. Definitely worth to visit this garden.
  • Very nice and relaxed garden enjoyed time there. And they have toilets there
  • Enchanting, with breathtaking views of the sea and the harbor!! Don't miss the hanging vine flowers in the middle of the garden! They look almost carnivorous :)
  • A green spot in the capital of Malta where you can sit, contemplate and relax watching the beautiful seaviews.
