Description

A jewel of greenery and color, the Majorelle Garden is a small haven of peace located in the heart of the city of Marrakech. This garden is created in 1931 by the French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886 - 1962) around his art deco workshop of an astonishing modernity, built by the architect Paul Sinoir.
As he travels, the artist Jaques Majorelle has become a gardener to bring back from all over the world, or to exchange with distant correspondents as passionate about botany as he does hundreds of rare varieties of trees and plants. .
This Garden is a living work of art which today exhibits plants from five continents. Bamboos, palm trees, cacti, flower pots and aquatic plants are married with great finesse and can only impress visitors.
In 1937, the artist creates an intense and clear ultramarine blue: the Majorelle blue, which he dyes his garden that he opens to the public in 1947. What was the studio of Jacques Majorelle, now houses the Berber Museum which was inaugurated in 2011 under the patronage of His Majesty King Mohamed VI. It presents a panorama of the extraordinary creativity of this people, the oldest in North Africa.
From the Rif to the Sahara, more than 600 objects collected by Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent attest to the richness and diversity of a culture that is still alive.
