I’lisla (The Island), became Senglea after Grand Master Claude de la Sengle who built its fortifications in 1551. Safe Haven Garden was also planned by the master. At the very tip of the bastion, there is a lovely guard tower known as ‘il-gardjola‘. It is decorated with symbols like ear, eye and a crane bird carved in the stone. The eye on the tower is a popular icon representing Malta. It is also featured in many brochures about the island. There are also some inscriptions in Latin, which assures that the inhabitants of the harbor area rest at ease, as the tower stands as guard against any hostile force that may attempt to aproach Maltese shors.
The garden has trees and benches and provide spot to relax vhile enjoying the view.
The view is really lovely and offers enjoyable moments.
