  • From the perspective of 3 visitors... this is a beautiful garden. My love for cacti is intensified! The blue is impressive and the bamboo sky tall!

So be patient or find a different garden to visit. We did queue, but the wait was not excessive to enter. To us it was worth the visit.
  • Jardin Majorelle in Marrakesh in south of Morocco is one of the most visited cities in the city. It's founded by French painter Jacques Majorelle. The garden contains many exotic plants with Moroccan architecture. Lovely place to visit but in the and you discover that's not very magic as they tell to Marrakesh visitors. But I enjoyed the visit.
