The views are amazing from this place, however i didn't get why this is called 'gardens' because there is no grass on which there are any flowers - it is soil with several nice large trees, no flowers, nothing too spectacular on the 'gardening' front!...More

We visited this as we walked round the walls of the city. It shows a different view point overlooking the port and distant towns.

Not somewhere I would make a special trip to see but it is a pleasant spot with good views if you are in the area.
