RELAXING AT THE MAJORELLE GARDENS, MARRAKECH

I know it’s all cold and snowy, so look at some pretty pictures of lush gardens instead…

In 1924 Jacques Majorelle, a French painter, bought some land and started creating a botanical garden around his studio. They were a popular attraction from when they opened in 1947 until Majorelle died and the gardens closed in 1962.  In 1980 fashion designer Yves Saint-Laurent rescued and re-opened the gardens.

So, there you go – now you know the history behind the gardens.

They are lush and  beautiful and colourful and peaceful and if you are in Marrakech, you should definitely go.
