An essential stopover during a stay in Marrakech, the Majorelle Garden, 4km from the Restaurant Le Foundouk!
A little history....
French painter, Jacques Majorelle fell in love with Marrakech during a trip in 1917. He decided to settle there and create his own workshop in the heart of an important palm grove. With the many exotic plants and rare species that he brought back from five continents during his travels, the garden became the Majorelle Garden with the opening of public visits in 1947.
Left abandoned following the painter's death in 1962, the Majorelle Garden was bought and restored by Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé in 1980.
In this sumptuous garden, you will find a villa, a bookshop, a gallery, a shop. Also discover in the former studio of the painter artist, a museum on the history of the Berbers, their culture, wealth and creativity with more than 600 exhibits (leather, jewelry, weapons, carpets, weaving...).
A relaxing and resourcing environment...
Both colourful and fresh, you will fall under the spell of this garden full of poetry. Stroll between cacti, bougainvilleas, bamboo groves, palm trees, banana trees and the many plants from all over the world.
There are also small canals that cross the garden and flow into a large pool with a fountain where you can see water lilies and beautiful lotus flowers.
Also observe the painter's studio painted in a bright blue-mauve (called Majorelle blue) contrasting with the pretty shades of colour of the vegetation.
