Palm grove

Marrakech palm grove
  • Palm Grove Tour Route

The Marrakech palm grove, the country's northernmost, counts almost 100 000 trees today. But its splendour of old is no more. Most of the rhettaras (irrigation channels) being exhausted, drought threatens what used to be a huge tropical garden. An ambitious project to introduce 300 000 plants was initiated, but it does not manage to mask the balding palms, which have become the backdrop of a top-notch urbanisation process.
