Senglea

Our rating: 8.60
Overall rating:
Upper Barack gardens in Valletta offers a nice view of the small towns on the southern coast of the Great harbour - Senglea (old name Isla), Vittoriosa (Birgu) and Cospicua (Bormla). These places have been selected in the Middle Ages by the Knights to built here first fortifications.

Unlike other mini-towns in the southern part of the Great harbour, there are almost no fortifications on Senglea. But on the very edge there is wall, a small park and watchtower "Gardiola" (Vedetta), one of the symbols of Malta. It is the only tower left from the fort destroyed by the Luftwaffe. On the walls of the tower find bas-reliefs of the ear, the eye and the bird. I think it's clear what they are symbolize.

Compare strengthening with Vittoriosa. By the way, such enormous strengthening, with two rows of walls, cannot be found anywhere else in Europe. All these forts (Cottonera line) were built in 1670.

There are no significant attractions on Senglea, but it's nice, cozy and pleasant for walking old town.

when going to a location that is not familiar, it would be handy to be able to print the location, but there is no way of doing this. Can this be corrected
