Upper Barrakka Gardens – Valletta

Whatever you do in Malta, do not miss the Upper Barrakka Gardens located at the highest point on Valletta’s bastions to enjoy the Barrakka’s breath-taking view of the only natural harbour in the Mediterranean. With the Three Cities as its backdrop, this harbour has dictated Malta’s history since history began.

The Upper Barrakka gardens were built in 1661 as private gardens and exercise grounds for the Knights of St John. The arcades at the end of the garden were originally roofed over but after the Priests’ Revolt in 1775, the Grand Master had thought that the conspirators used these shady corners for meeting, and had the ceiling removed. The Maltese public could only enter the Upper when the French occupation ended in 1800.

The first feature as you enter is a large fountain surrounded by colourful flowers in the centre of the garden. Beyond it stands a sculpture of Lord Gerald Strickland, former prime minister of Malta (1924 – 1932) by Antonio Sciortino, the famous Maltese sculptor.

On the left of the gardens a bust of Winston Churchill by Vincent Apap stands on the spot that he himself chose. Nearby, stop to admire the touching bronze group called ‘Les Gavroches’, showing a young boy in tattered clothing, leading two younger ragged children by the hand, depicting misery at the turn of the twentieth century. The original is to be found in the Museum of Fine Arts.

Tips and things to be aware of

  • During festa week, the main roads and the main square of the locality are usually cordoned off during celebration hours, and sometimes even before. No traffic is permitted through the central part of the locality in these hours.
  • If you are going to the festa make sure you organise your trip there and back beforehand. Unless you are staying in the same locality, finding buses or taxis at night can get tricky. If you want to take the bus to the festa, ask for directions to the centre as chances are, it will stop you a few streets away. If you drive there yourself, expect to have to park on the outskirts. Don’t forget to remember where you parked – old village centres can be a bit of a maze of small winding streets.
  • Keep your distance while watching the fireworks. Although the air fireworks are usually lit up from the outskirts of the village, Catherine wheels (elaborate pyrotechnic displays mounted on large poles in the street) can be pretty close. Keep your distance as the shower of falling petards to the ground can be dangerous.
  • Local band clubs host individual parties inside their club houses, which are usually located close to the parish church. Although the atmosphere is usually jovial, alcohol, summer heat and a passionate extrovert culture don’t always mix well. ? If you have any small children, I would not suggest you take them there as it can get very stuffy and it’s not uncommon for a bar fight to break out.
  • If you happen to stay in or near a village celebrating a festa, expect to hear loud firework explosions as early as 8am. Don’t like the sound of that (pun not intended) have a look at the calendar below to change plans!
