Lovely gardens by the entrance to town

Nice place to rest from sightseeing. Plenty of shade if you want it with a pretty fountain in the center. Great views from the battlements.

A great place for kids especially if you get to the gardens to hear the canon roar across the water. Dignified and a solemn reminder of all that Malta experienced during the war. As there is little green in and around Valetta a refreshing place to visit with great views across the harbour to the Three Cities area.

Plenty of seats either in the sun or the shade to stop for a rest. We were lucky to be there when a naval ship was being escorted out the harbour to a gun salute.

Worth going to, especially at noon, when a canonball is shot from theer. From up there you can take a lift all the way down to the port, or the other way around.

Excellent view of the harbor from a high perspectve. The garden area is nice but quite small, not sure why the attraction is so highly rated. If it is worth visiting if you are just walking around but don't make a special trip to see it.

Get there earlier in the morning on a sunny day and view is spectacular and pristine. Been here for 12 days and my morning walks found me there multiple times. Cloudy or afternoons just aren't the same feeling. Enjoy

The Upper Barrakka Gardens are well kept up, clean and tidy. and provide the ideal place to watch the 'Saluting Battery' at midday and 4pm. You also get a fine view of the Grand Harbour.
