The "lower barrakka gardens" complete the scenery with the "upper barrakka gardens". It s a "can t miss it spot" and you should visit it.

Pretty quiet and relaxing place near the St Elmo fort. Very beautiful vegetation with lot of flowers which makes it a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view over the Grand Harbour.

Ideal place to rest after visiting war museum, or walking the upper harbour walk. There is a pretty fountain and shady spots out if the sun. The cafe just outside is perfect for a cold drink and snack

Spend a morning in the Upper Barraka Gardens, Saluting Battery, and Lascaris War Rooms. Then take a leisurely walk along the outer walls of the city down to the Lower Barraka Gardens. Here the small Gardens are also nicely laid out. There are plenty of places to sit and admire the Gardens, or gaze at the excellent view of the... More

The less known from the two viewing decks in Valletta. The Lower Barrakka Gardens is a beautiful place to stroll and enjoy the wonderful views of the Grand Harbour. The narrow roads leading to it make the whole experience even more suggesting. Definitely worth a visit.

These gardens are beautiful and much less touristy than the Upper Barrakka Gardens. Had a lovely picnic while watching the tour boats on the harbour. It seems that many of the locals use this as a lunch spot, which gives the place a very different and much more relaxed atmosphere.

Its a decent view from the lower Barracca gardens to watch the bell being rang at 12.00 mid day. Very loud and worth watching people who ignore the signs asking them not to stand underneath the bell when it is rang.
