Buskett is the only woodland area in Malta. Located in the fertile valley of 'wied il-luq' and overlooked by the VERDALA PALACE these gardens are at their best in spring, but offer shade from the harsh mid summer sun and are a beautiful place for a walk in the winder months or a picnic on Sunday afternoon.
These gardens were planted by the knights hospitaller as a hunting ground. Buskett has vineyards, oranges, olives and lemon groves and is heavily wooded with native hardy species such as Mediterranean pines.
