The Majorelle Garden was designed in 1924 by Jacques Majorelle, French landscape painter that had settled in Marrakech in 1919. For the first years after its creation, the painter used the garden as an inspiration and in 1947 they were open to the public. Since 1980 the garden is owned by Yves Saint Laurent.
The garden features the Islamic Art Museum of Marrakech, a small museum that houses various Islamic art work.
The Majorelle Garden is relatively large and includes a vast selection of plants and flowers. These are divided into different areas of palm trees, cacti, garden plants and aquatic plants. Not as well-known as the Menara Gardens, the vibrant colors, fountains and exotic plants provide charm and relaxation.
