The Majorelle garden in Marrakeck is one of the most visited places in morocco and one of the best gardens marrakech. It took forty years to the french painter Jacques Majorelle to create with passion this enchanting place that is currently located in the heart of the ochre city. Walking through its shadowed paths, we are encircled by trees and exotic plants that make us wonder where they are from. We walk past water points flowing musically and between ornamental lakes full of water lilies and lotus.
We hear the rustle of the leaves in the trees as the delicate wind caresses them and the screams of birds. We stop in front of a moor building painted with vivid colors such as a strong blue that the artist saw during his travels in the Atlas.
We are soothed by the harmony of this picture where all the senses are gently asked to partake to that magical promenade, out of the town and yet so near of it, encircled by high walls of earth, out of the time.
