Upper Barrakka Gardens - Valletta, Malta
The Upper Barrakka Gardens (Maltese: Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq) are a public garden in Valletta, Malta. They are twinned with the Lower Barrakka Gardens in the same city, and offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour.
The gardens are located on the upper tier of St. Peter & Paul Bastion, which was built in the 1560s. The bastion's lower tier contains the Saluting Battery.
In the park there are several monuments and memorials to a number of prominent people. It is the highest point of the city walls, and thus its bordering terrace offers a clear view over the Grand Harbour, the Three Cities, as well as over the shipyard and the lower-lying parts the capital.

Day Trip in Valletta - The Upper Barrakka Gardens and Saluting Battery
The Upper Barrakka garden is a must-see for anyone visiting Valletta. The garden is built on top of a demi-bastion and has several statues and monuments including one dedicated to Winston Churchill.
The Upper Barrakka garden offers stunning views of the Grand Harbor and Valletta and it's the main reason to visit.
The saluting battery is located in the gardens directly beneath the top tier of the main garden.
The battery used to fire once a day, marking the mid-day and helping people set their clocks as well.
Currently, the battery fires twice a day - at noon and at 4pm. If you get there 15 minutes earlier, you will hear a short commentary as well.
We spent around two hours in the gardens and we really enjoyed every bit of it. We highly recommend visiting the gardens when you are in Malta.
We are a family for four, traveling the world as much as we can. The world is a beautiful collection of amazing people and places and we enjoy discovering it.

Info about the Upper Barrakka and the Grand Harbour:
The Upper Barrakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq) is a public garden in Valletta, Malta. It offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour.
Valletta's most beautiful park on the bastion of St Peter and St Paul created already existed in 1775 and is the highest and most impressive point of the city walls. It offers a magnificent view over the Grand Harbour and the old towns of Senglea and Vittoriosa, at the shipyard as well as the lower-lying parts the capital. In the park there are several statues, and a successful sculpture of the Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino, entitled The street boys.The garden was the gift of an eighteenth-century knight. (Info - wikipedia)
The Grand Harbour (in Maltese: Il-Port il-Kbir) is a natural harbour on the island of Malta. It has been used as a harbour since at least Phoenician times. The natural harbour has been greatly improved with extensive docks and wharves, and has been massively fortified.
The harbour mouth faces north east and is bounded to the north by St Elmo's Point and further sheltered by an isolated breakwater and is bounded to the south by Ricasoli Point. Its north west shore is formed by the Scibarras peninsula which is largely covered by the city of Valletta and its suburb Floriana.
This peninsula also divides Grand Harbour from a second parallel natural harbour, Marsamxett Harbour. The main waterway of Grand Harbour continues inland almost to Marsa. The south eastern shore of the harbour is formed by a number of inlets and headlands, principally Rinella Creek, Kalkara Creek, Dockyard Creek, and French Creek, which are covered by Kalkara and the Three Cities: Cospicua, Vittoriosa, and Senglea.
History: Grand Harbour was the base for the Knights of St John for 268 years, and after their departure became a strategic base for the British for a further 170 years. It was the site in the late 16th century of a devastating tornado that killed 600 people and destroyed a shipping armada. The area was the scene of much of the fighting in the First Siege of Malta when the Turks attempted to eject the Knights of St John.
The whole area was savagely bombed during the Second Siege of Malta during World War II, as the docks and military installations around the port were legitimate targets for Axis bombers. However collateral damage wrecked much of Valletta and The Three Cities, and caused large numbers of civilian casualties.
The harbours and docks are still active but with the departure of the British Military the harbour lost much of its military significance. A considerable part of Malta's commercial shipping is now handled by the new free port at Kalafrana, so the harbour is much quieter than it was in the first half of the 20th century. Info - wikipedia
