Description

Located to the west of the city of Marrakech, at the gates of the Atlas Mountains are the beautiful Menara Gardens. Built in the 12th century by the Almohad ruler Abd al-Mu’min, the gardens have become one of the most photographed places in Morocco due to its breathtaking backdrop of the Atlas Mountains. The gardens get its name from the pavilion; built during the 16th century Saadi dynasty. This pavilion or ‘minzah’ and the basin; an artificial lake, are surrounded by gardens, palm trees, fruit trees and olive groves. Menara Gardens are in fact known to house around 30,000 olive trees. From the pavilion visitors are offered beautiful views of the gardens and surrounding landscape, including the magnificent Atlas Mountains. The gardens are now a popular spot amongst locals and tourists alike, and are great for those looking to enjoy a picnic and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, or for those looking to escape the soaring Moroccan temperatures, or for a fantastic photo op.
