Good views of the harbour and over towards the Three Cities. Some shade here - definitely needed in the hottest part of the day.

We visited while going on our own all over the old town. Lots of people there and some nice views over the waterfront area.

Interesting place, very quite from where you can admire part of the harbours and the city. Also, we enjoyed watching the battery firing at 4pm.

An oasis of peace in a hectic city. It's calm and has the most gorgeous views of the saluting battery and Grand Harbour
