There are two Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, we visited both, however this is by far the quietest of the two. Lovely views of the sea, and a good place to unwind and find some shade from the sun.

Beautiful little garden with stunning views over the harbour and the three cities. Great location for taking pictures and to see the huge cruise ships arriving into the port.
