A very tranquil and beautiful little garden, I enjoyed a couple of visits. There is a cafe so that you can get refreshments and the views are excellent.
As well as a lovely day time visit, I went there on my last evening and it was very peaceful - and they were rehearsing for the Pageant of the Seas so I got some free entertainment thrown in. I will try the restaurant next time I come.

A lovely lovely place... at any time of day but especially early morning, with a coffee or juice. The views are unbelievably exciting, both scenically and historically, and the little garden, with its Doric monument and loud birdsong, a dream. Relaxed and not too crowded.

A great little garden and a really relaxing place to pass some time. The statues and monuments are impressive and the flowers and plants are really well kept. Plenty of spots to sit and great views over the harbour mean you really should pass through when in the city.

We walked up to here one blustery evening to see a cruise ship come in. Small, but nice to just wander. Lots of seating to stay and take in the view of the Three Cities - provided view not blocked by incoming cruise ship!!

It’s one of the best places to enjoy the perfect Valletta view of the Grand Harbour, especially admiring it through the Arches placed at the end. The garden itself is beautiful and well taken care of. The neoclassical monument in the middle of it is what is also worth the visit!

It is a small area but beautifully designed and maintained. Several places to sit in the shade and look out at the sea. Space for quiet time. It is near the museum at St Elmo so stop here before or after.

A lovely peaceful spot where you can find shade and public toilets and just sit in the benches and relax for a while.

Well worth a visit. Can go on to the war bell and to the elevator. A fun way to explore the Harbour front area.

We were there in December 2016 after visiting the Upper Barrakka Gardens.

What we like about it:

1-It is not as busy as Upper Barrakka Gardens

2-it offers different views

3- It's free

4- A lot more benches here than at Upper Barrakka Garden for to sit and enjoy the view (photo attached)

5-Quietness

NOTE: Is this place for kids?For a short visit would be ok.

A view of the the surrounding that is enviable, it costs nothing and you will consider part of your Valletta journey complete.

Less crowed, the lower Barrack Gardens is quieter than the upper one. I really prefer that one, it's a lovely place to relax.
