The Jardin Majorelle - YSL Gardens

DSCF8537

One of the highlights from my Marrakech trip was visiting Jardin Majorelle. The french painter Jacques Majorelle fell in love with the intense light of Morocco in 1923 and built a Moorish villa with a luxurious garden and a separate bright blue studio. In 1980 was the garden bought and restored by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge. It is such a special place that Yves Saint Laurent had his ashes laid to rest at a memorial on the property. With over 300 types of plants and lots of carefully placed walks and fountains, the garden is a beautiful haven you can escape to when the red of the city gets a bit too much. Definitely a must visit place in Marrakech.
