Gardjola Gardens in Senglea's bastions offer spectacular views of the Grand Harbour

The Gardjola Gardens are located in Senglea, on the top of the bastion with fantastic panoramic views over Marsa, Valletta, Grand Harbour and Fort St. Angelo.

The gardens were planned by Grandmaster De La Sengle in 1551 with a lovely guard tower built on the tip of the bastions. The Gardjola has various symbols sculpted on it, including an eye, an ear and the crane bird. Each symbol has its own meaning. Guardianship, observance and protection of Maltese shores.
