Great place to go and sit, watch arriving cruise ships and see the saluting battery at midday looking over the harbour

“Excellent location well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This is a lovely place to visit so relaxing and a beautiful view over the harbour. The 12 o' clock cannon fire was good to experience. Equally as pleasant by night.

“The best view in Malta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

The Knights new something about picking a good spot for a garden. This Garden has the best vantage point for a view of the Port of Valletta. Beautifully maintained gardens with a great view.

“Great views of the Three Cities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

To find the gardens take a right past the restoration works by the main gate and follow the street up the slope to the next junction then it's sign posted on the street corner across on the left. When you get there the views across the Gun Battery (Fired at mid-day) over the Grand Harbour are absolutely superb. Unfortunately there where only a few flowers out but it was the beginning of December so hardly surprising but the area itself is laid out well with plenty of seating areas. Its free to get in and a nice spot to eat a sandwich while taking in the panoramic scenery. There is also a cafe right by the entrance to the gardens if you want to grab a bite or a refreshing drink.
