General Information About Majorelle Garden & City Wall in Carriage
Designed by legendary French artist Jacques Majorelle and restored by the fashion icon Yves Saint Laurent, each of their individual styles is easily felt and appreciated when walking through this masterpiece. Compare the gardens with those at Menara, set in the backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and featuring exquisite water features. Then travel in style by horse and carriage to enjoy an unforgettable tour of the historic city walls of Marrakech.
Immerse yourself in the Majorelle Gardens and instantly be transported from the middle of one of the most hectic and chaotic cities in the world to a haven of tranquillity and beauty. Home to fountains and pools, over 300 species of plants and a large variety of wildlife, the gardens were the masterpiece of artist Jacques Majorelle who once lived within them and dedicated his life to their creation. Having fallen into disrepair and upon pending redevelopment into a hotel complex, the fashion guru Yves Saint Laurent purchased the remaining gardens and restored them to their former glory. The result is a breathtaking fusion of two masters at work and definitely not to be missed.
Proceed to the equally stunning Menara Gardens, a former summer residence of the sultans and dating back to the 11th century. The garden pavilion and the numerous intricate water features are among its many highlights. Finish your memorable tour with a ride in a traditional horse and carriage around the beautiful red sandstone walls of Marrakech, learning about their fascinating history.
