Amazing view, and the firing of the gun. It's a great place to take a break and relax for a while. It's also convenient for visiting Lascaris and for the lift down to the front.

The Upper Barrakka Gardens are located near the Prime Minster's office and are situated over Valletta's bastions, the gardens have a lovely tranquil feel to them and offer stunning panoramic views of the Grand Harbour and the Three Cities. It also has some very interesting memorials on its beautiful limestone archways plus it overlooks the Saluting Battery so if you time it correctly you'll get the most wonderful pictures of the gun being fired which is quite dramatic as there's lots noise and smoke and definitely worth seeing.
So if you're planning to visit Valletta a trip to the Upper Barrakka Gardens should be near the top of your list of places to see.

View on the three cities is really beautiful. We saw saluting battery performance too but were not that impressed (one "shooting" with the canon).

There are some lovely views from these gardens over the harbours and buildings of Valleta and the three cities. This is a pleasant and shady place to rest from the sun or if you need a break from sightseeing.
