  • In the new city. About 20 ' of the Medina. Wonderful visit to a fairy tale garden. The color, the variety of the vegetation, the scents of plants... everything you moved to eden. Within the spacious landscaped grounds, you can visit the Berber Museum with interesting examples of art and culture of this people, very illustrative of the past and present of Morocco. ESSENTIAL! A few metres, the Museum, Yves Saint Laurent, complete the day.

  • A good time to relax in a nice beautiful garden in the morning because not many people Taxi 30 d since the great place

  • Absolutely beautiful. Worth a visit. Definitely suggest going early to beat the crowds. Such a serene place is better enjoyed with less people around. We also paid the 30 dirham more to enter the Berber museum and I'm glad we did. This small, but well-executed, museum was a nice way to still get a historical background of Morocco without spending hours in a large museum. (Couldn't take photos in the museum)
  • I don’t really get what the fuss is about. If you like cacti then you’ll love. It’s a nice enough garden to wander in for 30 minutes... and you will spend 30 minutes lining up to get an over priced ticket. I felt better when I read that proceeds go to a charity that supports cultural development
