The iron balustrade at the upper Barrakka Gardens is protecting the visitors of all ages but does not obstruct them from enjoying the magnificent view of the Grand Harbour. Lower down one can view the canon which is also made of cast iron. This canon in the past was used to protect the Maltese from attacks by the enemy. Now this canon is an additional tourist attraction at this site. On the other side of the Harbour however the iron rods of the oil rig is a continuous eye-sore and is causing visual pollution.
