We loved these gardens with the fantastic views and visited several times during our stay. Also very popular with locals. Small cafe and public toilets. Plenty of seating. Do not forget to take your camera!!

An oasis of calm in a busy day of sightseeing, the Upper Barraka Gardens are well worth a visit. There is a little cafe where you can get a drink or an ice cream, seats placed in sun or shade so you can take a rest. And best of all an amazing vista of the Grand Harbour and the three cities. Don't miss it.

This garden offers a breat thaking view of the unique Maltese Grand Harbour that was the base for the Knights of St John for 268 years, and after their departure became a strategic base for the British for a further 170 years. It was the site in the late 16th century of a devastating tornado that killed 600 people and destroyed a shipping armada. The area was the scene of much of the fighting in the First Siege of Malta when the Turks attempted to eject the Knights of St John. The whole area was savagely bombed during the Second Siege of Malta during World War II, as the docks and military installations around the port were legitimate targets for Axis bombers.

Do not miss out on the Best view of the Grand Harbour, and the opposite 3 cities! Great place for photography. It is also ideal to get away from the hectic lifestyle of the city, relax and unwind on the benches, or the cafe, and let your kids enjoy themselves round the gardens!
