A garden that smells of love and symbolises the feelings between Sir. William Walton and his wife Lady Susana.
Born from the perfect fusion of many different elements, La Mortella Gardens are the product of Lady Susana’s passion for plants, as well as her token of love for the famous English composer Sir William Walton and the design of the great landscape architect Russell Page.
A series of elements at the boundary between chance and luck have made La Mortella a harmonious combination of avenues, fountains, and plants that have made the garden an enchanted place, an oasis of beauty and peace, accompanied by the presence of tropical and subtropical plants in contrast, yet in harmony, with the rest of the vegetation of the island.
The Gardens are the home to a multitude of specimens, some of them very rare, from all over the planet and the guided tour will be an exceptional opportunity to admire the most interesting species while the guide will invite you to take advantage of the sensory stimulation given by the forms, colours and smells that permeate the trails.
You will be guided to listen to the history and features of plants, from a team of guides trained directly by Lady Susana Walton; in the background, just like a soundtrack, you will listen to the pleasant noise of water coming from the fountains all around you.
A tour rich of information, through over 1,700 species of different plants in the garden which won the award as the most beautiful botanical garden of Italy and it is also considered one of the 13 most beautiful gardens on Earth. You will have, finally, the chance to observe the fascinating world of plants through the microscope.
