Located on the highest tier of the 16th-century St. Peter & Paul Bastion, the Upper Barrakka Gardens are one of Valletta’s most scenic spots. Visitors can gaze out and enjoy breathtaking views of the Grand Harbour and the fortified city of Senglea.
In the gardens, the city’s history is represented by sculptures of Gerald Strickland, former prime minister of Malta, and Sir Winston Churchill. Every day at noon, members of the Malta Heritage Society dress in British Artillery uniforms and fire a salute.
For a charge, you can take the modern elevator linking the Grand Harbour with the Upper Barrakka Gardens.
