Why is the Majorelle Garden famous?

Jardin Majorelle's fame originates from its eclectic collection of 300 plant species from five continents. Since its inception in the 1920s and 1930s, it has created a mesmerising multicoloured desert illusion. Located at the centre of the complex is Majorelle's electric-blue art deco studio, which houses the Musée Berbère. Through its exhibitions of over 600 artefacts, the museum presents a diverse range of Moroccan indigenous people.


With about 900,000 visits annually, the site has experienced tremendous growth in popularity in recent years and is currently Morocco's most popular tourist destination. Though it's no longer the tranquil haven it once was, this incredibly chic location nevertheless boasts art deco buildings, enchanted gardens, and a top-notch museum. The YSL Foundation opened up the area housing Villa Oasis, where Bergé resided until his death in 2017. As part of an expansion of the gardens in December 2018 to accommodate the enormous volume of visitors.


Along with a charming courtyard cafe, Jardin Majorelle also has a small book store, photoshop, and a stylish boutique that sells fabrics. YSL-inspired jewellery, Majorelle blue slippers, and Amazigh-inspired creations are also available.
