    Enjoying The Views From

    TIme to stop for more refreshments. The Gun Post Cafe was just the sort of place we love: set by the Marsamxett Harbour with views over to Sliema and run by a Maltese family that seemed to range from grandparents to grandchildren. More about this place in the Restaurants section.

    The Grand Harbour

    Well, what can I say? They don’t call it the Grand Harbour for nothing. At any given day several massive cruise ships lie anchored on this huge natural harbour on top of all the other ships and boats that regularly come in and out of Malta. It’s quite an impressive sight and can best be viewed from the Barracca gardens that are just at the right of you after entering Valletta through the city gate at the bus terminus.

    The three cities: Senglea, Vittoriosa and Cospicua.
    When the Knights first came to Malta in 1530 they made the small fortified town of Birgu, later renamed Vittoriosa, their base and soon after built Senglea and Cospicua.
    PICTURE: Sengle offers a spectacular view of Grand Harbour and Valletta from the look-out point, La Gordiola, sculpted with an eye, an ear and a bird and situated in the small Safe Haven Garden atL'isla Point.
    nice place to take photografs

    The gardens overlook the Three Cities and the harbour and offer one of the best panoramas in Valletta. It has been a favourite spot for many and it is a must photo stop!
