Visiting Le Jardin Majorelle Marrakech, also known as the beautiful and enchanting Majorelle Gardens is one of Marrakech’s most popula attractions for visitors.
Le Jardin Majorelle was originally created and designed by the French artist, Jacques Majorelle. However, it has since been lovingly restored and enhanced by Yves Saint Laurent following his purchase of the garden in the 1980s.
Today, the garden draws quite the crowd and queues are not uncommon to enter.
The garden takes around an hour or two to wandera rund, but visitors will also find a Berber Museum and a beautiful coffee shop. Adjacent is the newly opened Musee Yves Saint Laurent.
Entry information for visiting Le Jardin Majorelle:
Garden entry: 70 Dirhams
Opening times: Daily from 8-5.30pm (6pm in Summer months)
Musee entry: 100 Dirhams
Opening times: Everyday 10am to 6pm (except Wednesdays)
Forty Years of Passion
Jacques Majorelle dedicated forty years of his life to these gardens. The tropical gardens are complimented by Moorish detailing, seen in the paths, the buildings and the fountains. They feel like a real oasis in a frantic city. Enjoy Majorelle’s vision for colour and vibrancy in a dusty and frenetic city.
No words do justice to the beauty of these gardens, so I thought it would be best to portray the allure of the garden through imagery!
Visiting Le Jardin Majorelle Marrakech
A visit to the Majorelle garden really is unmissable! Unfortunately, the museum was not yet open – we will definitely have to go back in the next year or two.
I hope this post has been useful for anyone wondering whether or how to visit the garden whilst in Marrakech! Please also see my city guide here, as well as my favourite restaurants and cafes in the city here!
