Senglea (Isla)
The Essential
Vittoriosa lies opposite Senglea, a more popular town, officially called Isla, but renamed in honour of the Great Master, French-born Claude de la Sengle. The fortified headland was popular with the Knights as a place to walk. The view over Vittoriosa, particularly at sunset when the golden stone is lit up, is particularly stunning. At the end, explore the delightful Gardjola Garden where you cannot miss the iconic guard tower, after which it is named.
