To the south of St Gregory’s stands Luqa Briffa Garden. The anti-French revolt untrusted in the first British Governor, Sir Alexander Ball, who had greatly helped the Maltese in their uprising against the common enemy. Ball, in the villages, is best known for the mayoral gardens he introduced himself as a fitting reward for the Maltese leaders. Among these gardens Żejtun’s is not only the finest, but it is also the only one that is open to the public. Later the garden was called Luqa Briffa Garden after one of the Maltese heroes in the Great Siege of 1565. A number of rare trees grow in this walled garden. This is garden is designed by the Żejtun architecture Michael Cachia.
