Located in the heart of Marrakech, the Majorelle Garden is one of the major spots in Marrakech. It was founded in 1947 by Jacques Majorelle, a painter living in Morocco since 1919, and purchased at his death by Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent.
The garden exhibits today, according to tradition, Majorelle, plants from five continents. Bamboos, palms, cactus, flower pots and water plants.
A timeless space, thanks to the soothing plants, the French-Moroccan architecture, reflecting the historic marriage of two cultures and the mixture of blue and purple, the color Majorelle.
This blue is everywhere in the gardens including in the building of the Museum of Islamic Art, where Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent have carefully selected several objects from North Africa and East Asia.
There are also several ponds and fountains in the garden and water lilies.
