Jardin Majorelle, Marrakech

The Jardin Majorelle, also known as the Yves Saint Laurent Garden, is one of the most visited sites in Morocco. Situated in the heart of the “Ochre City”, the garden took French painter Jacques Majorelle forty years (1886-1962) to create. The garden covers nearly two and a half acres and includes collections of cacti, exotic plants and trees. It also includes several bird species such as blackbirds, house sparrows, robins, blue tits, great tits, warblers, grey wagtails and turtledoves.

At the heart of the Jardin Majorelle is the Yves Saint Laurent Museum which contains several collections of the late designers pieces, most of which are inspired by Moroccan fashion and culture. While photographs are not allowed in the museum, I can confirm that it is one of the most beautiful and enchanting museums ever I have seen.
