The Lower Barakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka t'Isfel) is a garden in Valletta, Malta, and it is twinned with the Upper Barrakka Gardens in the same city.
The gardens offer a view of the Grand Harbour and the breakwater. It includes the Monument to Sir Alexander Ball, which is a prominent feature in the form of a neoclassical temple located at the centre of the garden. In addition, the terrace area features a number of commemorative plaques dedicated to, amongst others, the Hungarian revolution of 1956, the Prague spring, Giuseppe Garibaldi and the 50th anniversary of the European Union. There is also a statue.

Get an amazing view of the sea. It is a really cool place with its beautiful domes opening towards the endless sea. There are plenty of benches to relax, can get crowded sometimes but still a must see attraction in Malta. The plants / trees provide enough shade even with the hot sun overhead, it is a place to relax.

A garden that is less crowded but just as beautiful as the upper gardens. It’s a bit smaller in space and there is can what be considered to some, a bit f a steep walk back from the lower gardens. There are some scenic views of the port though, and just across is the memorial bell.

The views of the Three Cities are stunning. Watch the cruise liners come and go from this vantage point. Great photo shooting location and the kiosk close by makes one of Malta's best home made burgers.

Nice looking garden, quiet considering how touristy it is. And it has a public toilet which is appreciated!

really well taken care garden, it will be a lovely and refreshing oasis during summer. Amazing views to the three cities, has a small coffee shop that looks to gather loads of people. Also for you fellow instagramers or facebookers there is wifi here. Pop over to the salutation battery, there is only a fee of 3€ but it is worthy if you are into military. Also they fire the canon every day at12pm and 4pm. Enjoy

Fairly similar to the Upper Barrakka Gardens, except there are less people and the view on the sea is better. There's a refreshment stall at the entrance as well as a restaurant, and toilets inside the park. Definitely a nice place to relax on a sunny day, since most of the park is covered by the trees' shades. On the downside the benches are a pain, which makes it difficult to relax !

Quiet and lovely viewing spot for sea view and admire the walled city of Valletta. There is a restaurant and a pub by the entrance. Great relax location in a sunny day.

Very beautiful place. If you need to see a garden... just go there... difficult to see various plants... don’t go to Malta...

The place is a great alternative to the upper barakka Gardens, just a couple of minutes away on foot. The view point is also very impressing but this garden is definitely more calm and confidential.

A hidden oasis in the bustling city. Like upper barrakka, this place has stunning views however the garden feels tropical and is much more lush and green. The monuments and statutes are lovey and it makes for a great photo spot or a place to relax!

Very nice place! Awesome view over the sea. But do not get food at the entry they are very unpolite and slow.

Tranquil place. Very beautiful public garden and lovely views. Worth going.

Not as impressive as Upper Gardens but peaceful place to watch ships in and out of the grand harbour. Cruise ships tend to leave around 5pm which is worth a watch if they are in port.
