The Majorelle Garden is a park built in the heart of the new city.
Created by the French artist Jaques Majorelle, who settled in the city of Marrakech in 1919, the Majorelle Garden was built in 1920, it includes a large Art Nouveau villa, characterized by walls entirely painted in blue.
The opening to the public took place in 1947.
Many plant species and varieties are part of the park: palm trees, olive trees, cypresses, banana trees, lemons, laurels, cacti, coconuts, bamboo, jasmine, agave, flowers etc …
The whole park is a real work of art, with intense colors, wonderful plants and flowers, the atmosphere is truly one of a kind.
The colors, the scents, the tranquility that you breathe in the Majorelle Garden, make this park an oasis of peace and relaxation in the confusing Marrakech, giving moments of sure amazement to lovers of art and nature.
After the death of the creator of the garden, Jacques Majorelle, which took place in France in 1962, the garden remained open to the public but over the years it saw an increasing degradation of its environments, until 1980, when the famous designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergè, admirers and visitors of the park, decided to buy it and restore its original splendor.
