Key points about this information item Gardjola Gardens, Senglea, Malta



Gardjola Gardens, Senglea, Malta


The small Gardjola Gardens are situated on the bastions on the opposite side of the Grand Harbour from Valletta and offer spectacular views of the harbour, plus Fort St Angelo and Marsa.  They are a popular stop with the tourist busses.


The original gardens were planned by Grand Master de la Semgle in 1551 and one of the best features is the delightful guards tower which hangs precariously over the edge of the wall.  The sentry post has various carvings and an inscription, including carvings of an eye and an ear, symbolising the need to watchful and listen out for your enemies.  Pictures of the tower are featured in many advertising brochures about Malta, so you are bound to recognise it already.


Although small, the gardens are worth a visit for the views and the peace and quiet.  There are a number of palm trees, plus some benches and make a pleasant spot to while away some time.
