Majorelle Garden

Categories: Must-see
Jardin Majorelle

Yves Saint-Laurent fell in love with the Majorelle Garden, which is one of the most photographed gardens in Marrakech.

What are you going to find in the Majorelle Garden? An incomparable collection of plants from the five continents: cactus, palms, jasmines and bamboos harmoniously integrated to the pools and marble fountains.

One of the stars of this garden is the blue building, result of the combination of the primary colors. This building was the studio of Jacques Majorelle. It is based on the Art Deco style and it also has Moorish influences.

Yves Saint-Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé discovered the Majorelle Garden during a trip in which they fell in love for ever with Marrakech. Eventually, the couple bought the gardens in 1980 and transformed Majorelle’s studio into a museum. Moreover, they also completed the plant collection.

Nowadays, followers of Yves Saint-Laurent, art and botanic lovers and visitors looking for a moment of relax in Marrakech are fascinated with the beauty of this place. If you are going to visit it, make sure your phone’s battery is charged, because you will not stop taking pictures and sharing them on Instagram.

Certainly, you will not visit this garden without taking a picture to keep as a memento.
