    Favorite thing: These gardens were laid out in the period when colonialism was still a good word in Europe. In the 1920s the French artist Jacques Majorelle had it made, complete with pools, banana trees, coconut palms, bougainvilleas, and houses in a fantastic dark blue colour.
    The gardens have later been taken well care of the French couturier Yves Saint-Luarent, who have added a private museum of North African artefacts.
    The gardens serve as a museum, and is open to the public for a normal entrance fee.

    Favorite thing: JARDIN MAJORELLE
    This blue house with a wonderful garden belonged to Yves St. Laurent. His house is now a Islamic Art Museum. The blue color of the house seems to integrate perfectly in the exhuberant garden.
    It's located in the north of Gueliz, the modern part of the town. You can go there in the n?4 bus from Djema el Fnaa, or by horse carriage.
    Entrance 20 Dh.

    Fondest memory: After a whole morning (and also the day before)walking through Marrakesh we went to visit the Jardin Majorelle, the garden from Ives St. Laurant. And it was so relaxing! We just sat there in the shadow and did nothing!
