Gardens

Barrakka Gardens
Named the Upper Barrakka and the Lower Barrakka, both gardens offer a stunning view of the Grand Harbour.

The Upper Barrakka garden, especially, is a must. Built on top of a demi-bastion, both locals and foreigners relish spending hours taking in the sights. A number of statues and monuments adorn the gardens, including one dedicated to Winston Churchill.
A monument dedicated to Captain Ball is located in the centre of the Lower Barrakka Gardens.

Hastings Gardens
Located on top of the bastions on the west side of City Gate, the recently-embellished Hastings Gardens offer a magnificent view of Floriana, surrounding cities and Marsamxett Harbour.
