Welcome to Jardin Mjorelle

Jacques Majorelle is born in 1886 in Nancy (France). Settled in 1919 in Marrakech, he continued his career in painting, where he acquires a ground which was going to become the Majorelle garden. Since 1947 he opened his garden's doors to the public. After a car accident, he returned to France, where he died in 1962. In 1980 Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent repurchased the garden and restored it.

The contrasts, the colors, the light games seem to go out from one of the paintings done by Jacques Majorelle. It was one of the most important collectors of plants of his era, and to this reason plants from five different continents are exposed in an enchanting framework. This was the workshop of Jacques Majorelle, an inspiration place of contemplation, that shelters today the magnificent art collection Islamic of Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent. The originality of these places lies in the combination of a luxurious vegetation and architectural elements allying sobriety and traditional Moroccan aesthetic.
