Garden Travel

Majorelle Garden

Magical Morocco, a country where magnificent landscapes unfold. Cities rich with history and culture beckon travelers, while expats from the far corners are lured to put down roots. And in Marrakech… garden lovers discover the world renowned Jardin Majorelle.

Now under the auspices of Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, the main building houses an exquisite collection of Berber art and artifacts.

Restored in 1980 by Saint Laurent and Bergé, the garden’s lush plantings and visually stunning layout and structures are deserving of a lengthy visit, while the Berber Museum is filled with entrancing displays.

The setting boasts a panoply of color used to full effect, where a blending of Islamic and Art Deco architecture and elements arise.
