Hastings Gardens gave us a different but fabulous view of the harbours, several locals were enjoying a stroll and a sit down. Well worth calling in.

We came upon this wonderfully peaceful place in Valletta by chance on our last day in Valletta. It’s not a “must visit” but if you come across it enjoy. It’s near Barracka Gardens Upper. Enjoy.
