Sightseeing in Marrakesh

Garden
“French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent gifted an entire garden to Marrakesh, the city that adopted him in 1966. Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé bought the electric-blue villa and its garden to preserve the vision of its original owner, French landscape painter Jacques Majorelle, and keep it open to the public. The garden began cultivating in 1924, and thanks to Marrakshi ethnobotanist Abderrazak Benchaâbane, the psychedelic desert mirage of 300 plant species from five continents continues to be preserved.”

“Jema Elfna in Arabic means ( the assembly of death) so it was hundreds of years before the square where the first Morocco dynasties will execute the sentenced death criminals. It will become the most attractive square in all the country and a world humanity patrimony protected by the UNESCO. Also the heart of the old authentic city and a symbol of it. All marrakesh visitors, tourists and locals from the other cities of Morocco will start their visit by the Jema elfna square which makes of it a multi nationalities meeting. It’s much more attractive by night, than you will find there what you can’t even imagine as food street, the typical moroccan food, and the international one. All this, between bands playing music, other organizing kind gambling games as to win a bottle of soda, laughing and street theatre groups. Snake charmers, henee tatoo women’s with their kids, Gnawa musicians, snails and squeezed orange juice salers. All what you will see in the Jema elfna square will be for your first time. Some will fall in love of the square and will be there each day , others just a bit,and some not. ”
