The Barrakka Lift in Valletta, Malta - KONE Elevators
A ride of the Barrakka Lift in Valletta, Malta, which is a public elevator linking the Valletta city center (via Upper Barrakka Gardens) in the upper part and the Grand Harbour on the lower part. These elevators were installed in 2012 to replace the original ones from 1905 which had been demolished in 1983 (ceased operation in 1973). The current elevators are KONE, which were installed by KONE's Maltese distributor, Mekanika Limited. A single trip to the top only costs €1, while return trip is free.
The Barrakka Lift are perhaps my favorite elevators to ride in Malta. As my cruise ship (where I worked) had a port of call in Valletta every Monday for embarkation until late of October 2019, I often went out to the city center or the Upper Barrakka Gardens (to use a public WiFi) during my free time by riding these elevators. It's like almost every Monday I rode these. For the elevators themselves, these are quite nice for being part of the city's urban transportation facility. They are fitted with KSS 140 vandal resistant fixtures which is perfect since these are outdoor installations. Also notice that these elevators have some sort of a load detection feature which I have never seen one before in any KONE elevator. It shows people the percentage of the car's load on the floor indicator, and the number increases as more people comes in. I have included another footage showing the feature in one of the cars when it was almost fully loaded! Pretty unique feature IMO, but I guess a lot of people won't notice it anyway.

Taking the new Upper Barrakka Gardens lift down.
The Upper Barrakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq) are a public garden in Valletta, Malta. It is twinned with the Lower Barrakka Gardens in the same city, and offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour.
One of Valletta's most beautiful parks, it was created in 1775 on the bastion of St. Peter and Paul. In the park there are several statues, including one from Sir Winston Churchill, and a sculpture by the Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino, entitled Les Gavroches (The street boys). The garden was the gift of an eighteenth-century Italian knight
Upper Barrakka Gardens - Valletta, Malta
The Upper Barrakka Gardens (Maltese: Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq) are a public garden in Valletta, Malta. They are twinned with the Lower Barrakka Gardens in the same city, and offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour.
The gardens are located on the upper tier of St. Peter & Paul Bastion, which was built in the 1560s. The bastion's lower tier contains the Saluting Battery.
In the park there are several monuments and memorials to a number of prominent people. It is the highest point of the city walls, and thus its bordering terrace offers a clear view over the Grand Harbour, the Three Cities, as well as over the shipyard and the lower-lying parts the capital.

Info about the Upper Barrakka and the Grand Harbour:
The Upper Barrakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq) is a public garden in Valletta, Malta. It offers a panoramic view of the Grand Harbour.
Valletta's most beautiful park on the bastion of St Peter and St Paul created already existed in 1775 and is the highest and most impressive point of the city walls. It offers a magnificent view over the Grand Harbour and the old towns of Senglea and Vittoriosa, at the shipyard as well as the lower-lying parts the capital. In the park there are several statues, and a successful sculpture of the Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino, entitled The street boys.The garden was the gift of an eighteenth-century knight.

The Grand Harbour (in Maltese: Il-Port il-Kbir) is a natural harbour on the island of Malta. It has been used as a harbour since at least Phoenician times. The natural harbour has been greatly improved with extensive docks and wharves, and has been massively fortified.
The harbour mouth faces north east and is bounded to the north by St Elmo's Point and further sheltered by an isolated breakwater and is bounded to the south by Ricasoli Point. Its north west shore is formed by the Scibarras peninsula which is largely covered by the city of Valletta and its suburb Floriana.
This peninsula also divides Grand Harbour from a second parallel natural harbour, Marsamxett Harbour. The main waterway of Grand Harbour continues inland almost to Marsa. The south eastern shore of the harbour is formed by a number of inlets and headlands, principally Rinella Creek, Kalkara Creek, Dockyard Creek, and French Creek, which are covered by Kalkara and the Three Cities: Cospicua, Vittoriosa, and Senglea.
History: Grand Harbour was the base for the Knights of St John for 268 years, and after their departure became a strategic base for the British for a further 170 years. It was the site in the late 16th century of a devastating tornado that killed 600 people and destroyed a shipping armada. The area was the scene of much of the fighting in the First Siege of Malta when the Turks attempted to eject the Knights of St John.
The whole area was savagely bombed during the Second Siege of Malta during World War II, as the docks and military installations around the port were legitimate targets for Axis bombers. However collateral damage wrecked much of Valletta and The Three Cities, and caused large numbers of civilian casualties.
The harbours and docks are still active but with the departure of the British Military the harbour lost much of its military significance. A considerable part of Malta's commercial shipping is now handled by the new free port at Kalafrana, so the harbour is much quieter than it was in the first half of the 20th century. Info - wikipedia
