Majorelle Garden is dated back to 1923 when the French painter Jacques Majorelle bought 4 Hectares in order to create a private garden. The garden has become a heaven for a large variety of plants from all over the world that Majorelle acquired in his travels.The park was opened to the public in 1947 to reduce the large maintenance costs, but the park has been divided after divorcing his wife. After the death of the artist Jacques Majorelle, the Frenchmen Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berger bought the park in 1980, and then restored it to the current format. The park now includes a museum of Amazigh art, a memorial of the famous designer Saint Laurent who died in 2008, a cafe ...and it is supposed to open a museum for Saint Laurent in 2017.The park is located in the center of the city of Marrakech, near the Bab Doukkala. The place is very well known for the locals and tourists who visit the place. It includes plants from five continents, especially palms, diverse factions of cactus trees, lotus blossoms... All of this is consistent with the blue color, which made this place a very distinctive from others.
