Visitors from around the world enjoy the spectacular surroundings of Majorelle Gardens

Take a visit to the stunning Majorelle Gardens (Garden of Majorelle), the last home of famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.

The gardens were constructed in 1924 by the French artist Jacques Majorelle. He famously painted his villa surrounding features and walls the intense shade of blue, for which he trademarked the name Majorelle Blue.

It is a ‘Must See’ destination for visitors to Marrakesh, and a great way to spend an afternoon. The botanical garden is home to a wide variety of plants, set amongst enchanting walkways, fountains and cactus collections.

The Majorelle Garden was first open to the public in 1947. In 1980 Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge acquired the Majorelle Garden. Yves Saint Laurent often visited the garden where he found refuge and above all his inspiration.

After his death in 2008 Yves Saint Laurent was cremated and his ashes were scattered throughout the gardens.
