  • Not as beautiful as the upper garden, but this place is less crowded and would be a nice stop to chill and take a breath during your trip exploring Valetta.
  • Quite nice place. Astonishing views over the Valetta bay.
  • The park is nice and quiet and have a nice view. The best thing is the walk under the walls along the shore - Moon walkery
  • A very nice play to sit and rest on your day in the city. It has a nice view of the sister cities of Valetta, and the bay in between.
  • Beste View to Birgu. Sometimes closed for private parties. Love to rest there.
