Photographer's Note

It seems that it is a Greek temple, but in fact it is a folly in Lower Barraka Garden in Valletta.
The Lower Barrakka gardens is situated at the lower end of Valletta on the bastions overlooking the entrance to the Grand Harbour. Located strategically so, from there one can see a superb view from the very mouth of the harbour. Located in a position to observe the Grand Harbour from another angle, the Lower Barakka garden is the place where you can sit down and relax looking at the splendid panoramic view. It is a nicely decorated garden with pathways and greenery. This garden hosts the monument of Vice Admiral Sir F Alexander John Ball delegated by Lord Nelson to command the blockading squadron and subsequently, chosen by the Maltese Insurgents to lead them against the French in 1798.
It is very nice place for relax in a hot day, good rest after going up and down the narrow streets of Valletta.
