Spectacular views of the Atlas Mountains
Visit to the Koutoubia Mosque from the Koutoubia Garden
After the pick-up you will drive through some of Marrakech's most beautiful gardens and discover fragrant oases in the heart of the city. Visit Marrakech's most important garden in the extensive former orchard of Agdal Gardens.
Founded in the 12th century by the Sultan Abd al-Mu'min of the Almohad Caliphate, the botanical garden is sometimes referred to as the "Islamic Versailles". A small part is open to the public on Fridays and Sundays when people come to feed the big carp in the old water basin or enjoy a picnic in the shade of the olive trees. On a clear winter day, the view of the snow-capped Atlas Mountains in front of an untouched blue sky is spectacular.
Together with the Menara Gardens, the Agdal Gardens were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. Designed around 1156-57 as part of an ambitious project by Abd al-Mu'min, the smaller gardens of Menara are a pleasure to stroll around. Enjoy the cool water of the large irrigation basin with the locals or have a picnic in the shade of the olive groves.
Enjoy the beauty of the Majorelle Garden, famous for its cobalt blue features and a series of mini-landscapes that take you on a sensual journey from cool, dreamy tranquillity to hot, prickly frisson. A masterpiece of the painter, plant collector and scholar Jacques Majorelle, the garden was opened in 1947 and purchased in 1980 by French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé.
From the Koutoubia Garden you have a magnificent view of the Koutoubia Mosque. Enter the garden through the main gate and look over a large fountain and a wide path leading to the mosque as it rises into a rich Moroccan sky.
