People have been able enjoy the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta for nearly 200 years. The gardens were first opened to the general public in 1824, and millions of visitors have entered through the gates since then.
This film footage from 1968 shows families taking in the one of the best views in Malta, with the Grand Harbour, Fort St Angelo, Vittoriosa, Senglea, Cospicua and Kalkara in the background. The gardens themselves host a collection of statues and plaques that commemorate outstanding personalities and significant events in history.
As well as a bust of Sir Winston Churchill there is a memorial to the brave servicemen who lost their lives in the Siege of Malta during the Second World War. The arches, trees and beautiful floral displays help to make the gardens a peaceful spot in an otherwise busy capital city.
