Giardini La Mortella
Villa La Mortella, which includes the botanical garden, the museum and an open theatre, was built in 1958 by Lady Susana Walton (1926-2010) and her husband, British composer Sir William Walton (1902-1983).
Designed by the famous landscape architect Russel Page, the park of Villa La Mortella is a tropical garden well-known worldwide.
It is divided into two areas: the Valley, with its wet and shaded microclimate, is home to a picturesque collection of subtropical plants, while the Hill, sunny and bright, is populated by Mediterranean plants. The garden also hosts several tropical greenhouses and a n exotic birdaviary. The park, with its tall trees, its fountains and water streams, and its varied and colourful flowers, is luxuriant and rich, and enjoys stunning seaside views.
La Mortella is owned by the “William Walton e La Mortella” Foundation, which safeguards and manages the garden and museum, organises seasonal concerts in both the Performance Hall and the Greek Theatre.
