The small upper Barracca gardens are located on the highest point of Valletta, As you can see, they offer a magnificent view over the Grand harbour and the "three cities". Everyday at noon the Noon Day Gun is fired here. The arches are what is left of the training facility for the Italian knights. After they conspired in 1775 against grandmaster Ximenes, the roof was taken of the building as punishment. The park somehow seems to be swarming with cats.
