Marrakesh’s many gardens act as refreshing havens in the heart of the city. A must-see when visiting the Red City, the gardens are a welcome break from the medina’s hustle and bustle. Stroll these peaceful parks, explore their museums, or simply take a sightseeing break. The Majorelle Garden, the most famous in the city, is where you can walk in the footsteps of Yves Saint Laurent. The fashion designer loved to wind down in this magnificent nook, where you too can wander among the tropical plants.
This is also where the Villa Majorelle is nestled. Its blue color contrasts the surrounding greenery, making it the perfect setting for snapping photos. Culture buffs should make their way to the Arsat Moulay Abdessalam Cyber Park. This 18th-century garden blends modernity with tradition. Choose from a wide range of activities, like visiting the telecommunications museum or walking among the orange trees and rose bushes.
For off-the-beaten-path travelers, we recommend uncovering the medina's Secret Garden. Its exotic flower beds are arranged around an old Saadian palace, providing a breath of fresh air in the middle of Marrakesh.See more
