“Magnificent panorama overlooking the three cities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

These gardens boast a magnificent view over the Grand Harbour which is surrounded bu bastions built to protect the cities from the enemy. One could sit in the shade overlooking breath taking views and meditate in peace.

“a beautiful mediterranean garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

stand on the terrace at the end of this garden and look out onto the Grand Harbour. You will realise why Malta has been conquered so many times in its history!

“Amazing views and lovely gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is a lovely place to view the harbour and take amazing photos. Relax when sight seeing have a lunch and cold drinks as you gather your strength to visit the rest of this amazing city. When we are in Valletta with visitors we always stop here and sit in a cool place with a beer and pastizza.

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

This is a lovely place to sit and admire the view over Grand Harbour. Open until late evening worth a trip to view the city by night.
