Majorelle Garden (and Berber Museum)

Majorelle Garden (and Berber Museum)

Unquestionably Marrakesh’s most fashionable (and glamorous garden), this jewel of a botanical garden in named after the French painter Jacques Majorelle who created it.  The garden increased its chic-factor yet further when it was bought and restored by French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.  There is an eye-popping variety of plants and trees from all over the world, punctuated by pergolas and fountains.  The Berber museum on the Garden’s property is breathtaking—it’s where I go to take notes on Morocco’s fascinating Berber culture.
