MAJORELLE GARDEN

16 May 2019

Surely the most beautiful garden in the city! It will seduce lovers of nature and birds of all kinds! The origin of this botanical garden goes to Jacques Majorelle, a famous French painter of the early 20th century.

Discovering Marrakech, he fell in love with Morocco, its bright colors, Berber architecture, civilization and its way of life.
He then resided in the "red city" and developed his botanical garden where he housed exotic plants, ponds and ceramics decorations.
The garden adopted the color "Majorelle blue", which the artist created to express the depth and intensity of the ocean.

The botanical garden is considered by its creator as his main work, to which he devoted his whole life. It opened its doors to the public in 1947.
Nowadays, the gardens of Majorelle are the property of Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint-Laurent who acquired this bit of paradise to protect it and ensure its durability.
This oriental garden is to see without hesitation to cut a bit of the city and enjoy the cooing of birds and wriggling water fountains ...
