Gardens of marrakesh

Escorted by an expert‚ we explore Marrakesh and get to know the city through its gardens and natural history. 

We begin with the celebrated Palmeraie‚ of course‚ and then pass on to the Menara‚ Agdal and Majorelle gardens‚ the superb rose gardens of the Koutoubia‚ the tile factories of Marrakesh‚ the gardens of the Mamounia hotel and the French Consul’s official residence.

The main points of the Gardens of Marrakesh weekend are as follows:

 1.      Exploration of the ’Red City’‚ escorted by an expert guide. The route that we follow around the town has been specially chosen to include as many interesting gardens and plants as possible‚ with an introduction to the medicinal plants and herbs that are very widely used in Marrakesh.

2.      The hotel and the meal venues have been selected with their attractive gardens in mind‚ as well as the warmth of their welcome and the quality of their cuisine. The menus have been designed to allow visitors to savour the delicate flavours of the plants that are used on a daily basis in Moroccan cooking.
