I liked this garden better because it was less crowded and had more vegetation. Easy to reach, just look for something green amongst all the stone.

This was much quieter than the upper barrakka gardens, more benches to sit and enjoy the view. Great views and photo ops.

Not as popular as it's "upper" cousin, hence quieter. Sit relax , drink coffee and enjoy the views out over the harbour.

A bit quieter and more calm. Feels more like somewhere that you would want to sit and contemplate the world going by. Also some good toilets inside!

Nice peaceful garden and a nice place to have lunch. More shade & plenty of seats. Not as big as the upper gardens but still nice views and overlooks the memorial bell 😊

Came across the Lower gardens while wandering the city. When we visited, it was a lot quieter than the Upper gardens, so would recommend if you wanted somewhere more peaceful to sit and reflect. Beautiful views across the water, and out to sea also.

If you’ve taken the trouble to view the upper gardens you might as well do these as well because they are just as good only you don’t get the extra views. Take the time out.

Sat here for a while eating lunch, benches along the side give good views of the harbour, and on the other side of the harbour entrance and breakwater. Waves were particularly impressive owing to the wind blowing in.
