The gardens of La Mortella are known throughout Europe for their beauty and their rare, extraordinary plant collection. Most of all, they are known as the former abode of William Walton, a great British composer. The charm of these gardens most likely resides in their origin. They arose from the hymn to love that William Walton composed throughout his life with his wife Susana. The gardens are also devoted to music: afternoon chamber music and piano concerts are often held here. On summer evenings, classical music concerts are held at Teatro Greco, an amphitheatre with a majestic point of view. At the heart of these gardens, a welcoming café invites visitors to take a break, enjoy a sweet or savoury treat, or simply sip a cup of tea.
