Fodor's Review

The Jardin Majorelle was created by the French painter Louis Majorelle, who lived in Marrakesh between 1922 and 1962. It then passed into the hands of another Marrakesh lover, the late fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. If you've just come from the desert, it's a sight for sore eyes, with green bamboo thickets, lily ponds, and an electric-blue gazebo. There's also a villa housing a fascinating Berber Museum with regular exhibitions, a museum shop, and a delightful café. Try to visit in the early morning before the tour groups—you'll hear the chirruping of sparrows rather than the chatter of humans.
