This is quite simply the best view of the city. Its a place that you can come for a quiet moment, enjoy a Pastizzi and a bottle of 7UP, Coca Cola or the local drink Kinnie. (Don't leave Malta without eating at least one Pastizzi)
When my brother and I were children, we'd run round the play area and pretend we were knights of St John and even now, it isn't difficult to imagine. Of course Valletta was built after the great siege of 1565. But if you look across the water you can see the three cities and if you look to the left you can just about see the old fort St Elmo.
Once you've taken in the scale of the citadel, have a look below into the harbour, there's normally ships in dock and some are being repaired. The main industry in Malta is the shipping and when you look into the harbour you will see why. (Tourism is 2nd)
If you've finished looking outside of the garden, do take a few moments to survey the mediterranean flowers in this otherwise barron rock, the gardener has to work hard to keep them alive during the summer months. (Used to be a friend of my grandad's)
It's well worth coming at sunset with your partner, because there is no more romantic place to see the sunset than in this garden. After seeing the sunset you can dine in one of the many restaurants in the city. A perfect end to a perfect day.
