This is a lot smaller than the Upper Barraka Gardens and doesn't attract the same kind of crowds but it is worth a visit. It offers stunning views of the city.

Another peaceful place in Malta, cafes all around, areas of seating to rest and wonderful views. A good place to while away some time even if you want to just read.
