Parks and Gardens - Famous from Malta, 3 cities
The Gardjola Gardens are located in 3 cities, in Senglea, also called La Isla, across the Valletta Waterfront. The gardens were built by Grandmaster De La Sengle in 1551. Specially interesting about this garden is small guard tower, featured in many tour guides and postcards from Malta. The guard tower or ‘Il-gardjola’, has various symbols sculpted on in such as an eye, an ear and the crane bird. These are representing guardianship, protecting the Maltese shores.
The garden itself is small, but it has a spectacular panoramic views over Marsa, Valletta, Grand Harbour and Fort St. Angelo. It is not far from the main Bus Terminus in Valletta, but it may take up to 30 minutes to reach Senglea, and then some 20 minutes by foot, to reach the tip of this small peninsula, through the narrow streets of Senglea. Public buses are no.: 1, 124, 213.
