The Majorelle Garden is a botanical garden projected and designed by the french painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) in the 1920s. The garden was open to public in 1947 but, after his death, the garden fell into disuse and oblivion.
The Garden reborn when it was bought in 1980 by the fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé. When Yves Saint Laurent died in 2008 his ashes were scattered in the Garden.
The Majorelle Garden has trees and exotic plants and houses the Islamic Art Museum of Marrakech, that includes paintings, ceramics, jewelry, and textiles from Yves Saint- Laurent personal collection.
