Gorgeously designed gardens away from the chaos of the Marrakech Medina. The gardens were created by French Orientalist artist, Jacques Majorelle over nearly 40 years (starting in 1923). In the 1980s the property was bought by fashion desingers Yve Saint-Laurent and Pierre Berge who restored it.
The gardens are small so you don’t need to allocate too much time there, but they’re definitely worth seeing.
We didn’t have to wait too long in the queue for tickets. However, I think during busier times of the year it might be wise to book in advance. Tickets are 70 Dirhams (£5.50) per person so not too expensive. You can buy a combined ticket combined with the Yves Saint Laurent museum if you’re doing both (they’re right next to each other).
Visiting the gardens might not be an ideal rainy day activity as I think the sun needs to be out for you to appreciate the colours. Lots of Instagrammable opportunities!
There’s a memorial to Yves Saint Laurent in the gardens too (see above).
