Lower Barrakka Gardens reviews
A pleasant suprise here which was unexpected. The memorial to the unknown soldiers which can be seen from the look out is very moving. more »
The Lower Barrakka Gardens are very quiet and offer a breathtaking view on Valletta and its bay. We have been there several times during our stay at Valletta. more »
The views are pretty much what they are from the Upper Gardens. A bit less foliage and a wonderful view of the Grand Harbor. There are clean and well maintained toilets here with sufficient supplies. Very nice play area for the kids. Try to get there for the midday gun salute - a hold over British custom.
Cool place to look around the Valletta bay area. The tower is quite impressive though not too high. Would recommend it to everyone who just wants to enjoy the view. It is located 10 minutes from the city centre.
