Pietà has two faces, the older town down by the water's edge and the newer development of Gwardamanġa on the steep hill between Pietà and Msida Creeks. Pietà retains its charm and atmosphere as an inlet of Marsamxett Harbour. Colourful fishing boats sit alongside the ferry boat for Gozo. Pietà' takes its name from the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows, a late 16th century Maltese village church which is tucked away close to the road leading to Tal-Pieta' Creek. A highlight of Pietà are the views of Valletta's fortifications. Opposite Pietà are Sa Maison Gardens. Laid out in the early years of British rule, and nestling on the fortifications, they offer a shady haven in summer.
