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.Using our online itinerary creator, Valletta attractions like Barrakka Lift can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

This is an impressive lift - whilst it is obviously a modern structure, it is quite sympathetic with its surroundings. A great way to or from the harbour. No fee to go down and €1 to come back up, so very reasonable.
Use this left if you're coming from the cruise terminal and want to visit the shopping area. So thankful for this lift, which saved us from climbing tons of stairs. We didn't realize saving this effort would be a good idea until we walked the cobble streets in the upper area and were exhausted by the time we returned.
