About Kitty and Nick
Swedish born Kitty Harri is an award winning sculptor and bestselling author, writing as Kitty Sewell. Together with her partner Nick an engineer and musician, they have created a unique art and music experience that now attracts hundreds of visitors each month. A labour of love, the sculpture garden has taken years to create and continues to grow and change as new sculptures are created and donated on a regular basis. Find out more about Kitty Harri.
The garden offers places to both stroll around and sit in the sun or shade. A terrace area and pool are located in the heart of the garden where you can enjoy a drink and nibbles, listen to the classical music and appreciate the mountains as they drop down through the lush valley towards the sea. On Open Sundays (every 1st and 3rd Sunday), you can enjoy the gardens whilst listening to live Classical Chamber Music, mostly Baroque (from the likes of Bach, Vivaldi, Telemann, Loeillet and more), performed by Nick on his harpsichord together with other talented local and visiting musicians. As this is a non-profit association, they ask for a donation of €10p.p. (which includes refreshments) to help with the running costs of the Garden. The garden is also open to private parties, tours and groups by appointment. Contact Kitty and Nick to arrange a visit.
Kitty Harri’s Sculpture Garden sits on ridge in the Valle Tropical which is part of costa tropical region of Andalucia, Spain. Located just north of Almuñécar in the Granada province, near to the village of Jete. Just 50 minutes by car from Nerja, you can find detailed directions on Kitty Harri’s website.

Workshops and artists-in-residence
Kitty and Nick invite artists, sculptors, wood carvers, stone carvers, mosaic and glass artists to create a work of art for the Garden. Artists from around the world come and stay for two or three weeks as “artist in residence”, to make a piece of work for the sculpture garden and also exchange new techniques, ideas and share inspiration. Regular workshops are also hosted, a great opportunity to learn a new craft. Past workshops have included Mosaic and Mosaic Table Workshops, Creative Writing Workshops, Ceramic Workshops and Concrete Sculpting Workshops. Find out more about the workshops.
