The Majorelle Garden is a small, green and colored haven situated in the center of Marrakech. In 1931, it was built by a French painter named Jacques Majorelle (1886 – 1962). The garden is created to cover his modern art studio which was developed by Architect Paul Sinoir.

Jacques Majorelle was a worldwide traveler, who used to report about gardens, and he was also acknowledged as someone who you can get several findings of plants from due to his knowledge base about hundreds of rare varieties of plants and trees.

The Majorelle Garden is a phenomenal work of art which abodes plants from five different continents around the world. The sight of palm trees, cacti, Bamboos, water-plants, and flower pots will sweep you off your feet.

Jacques Majorelle masterminded a pure and robust ultramarine blue in 1937 – nicknamed the Majorelle blue – with which he colored his garden and opened to the masses in the year 1947. The old Jacques Majorelle’s studio currently holds the Berber Museum which was established in 2011 by the authority of His Majesty King Mohammed VI. It showcases the unique level of creativity among the indigenes – which are known as the oldest in North Africa.

The presence of over 600 materials collected by Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent which can be found from the Rif to the Sahara is evidence to the diversity and cultural richness that exist within this region.
