Malta is an archipelago in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea between Sicily, Tunis and Libya. The landscape consist of low hills and terraced fields. It doesn't have mountains, it doesn't have forests, it doesn't have river valleys, but it has some amazingly beautiful gardens, and I enjoy spending time in some of them.
I am sure there are much more I have to discover, but the ones that I know are highly recommended for visiting.
Upper Barakka Garden
|Upper Barakka Garden in Valletta.|
Only in Valletta, there are three beautiful gardens, and they are a great relaxing spot. My favourite one is Lower Barakka Garden. Whenever I go to Valletta, this is a place where I want to drink my take away coffee and enjoy the wonderful view towards The Three Cities and the great harbour. From there you can also see the Upper Barakka Garden, but this one is usually crowded and is considered as the most popular.
|Hastings Gardens in Valletta. Photo was taken in January.|
On the other side of Valletta, there is the Hastings Garden.. It is a calm place with a nice view, benches and trees.
|Sa Maison Garden in Floriana. The Elf Garden!!!|
In Floriana, comes a very big and mysterious garden, which me and my boyfriend discovered, and it got my hart. You must visit it and see what am I talking about. When I am there, I feel like in an Elf garden. It is old around 400 years, and it looks towards Msida and Taxbiex yacht yard.
San Anton Garden
|San Anton Garden in Attard.|
Next comes the colourful and amazing San Anton Garden in Attard. One of my favourite places in Malta.I find this gardens very beautiful and full with flowers, peacocks and swans, and also turtles. I take my camera and go photo shooting around.
Have you visited some of this gardens? Is there any other garden I should visit? For more from Malta read my other stories on Travel Story Post.
