Upper Barrakka Gardens

Barrakka Gardens overlooked the Grand Harbour of Valletta. There wasn’t too much of what I’d term, garden. A few date palms grew near the stone arches. A couple of circular gardens lay surrounded by stone walkways. However, the location was worth a visit because of its spectacular views across the harbour.

We crossed the harbour to Kalakara with the sea bordering on three sides. Barrakka Gardens lay on the opposite side of the harbour and although the area was beautiful, the stone buildings were duplicates of what I’d seen elsewhere.
