2.0
#7 of 16 in Parks in Marrakech
Take in the relaxing atmosphere of Menara Gardens and Pavilion, a set of botanical gardens offering locals and tourists a break from the lively activity and noise of the city. Originally created in the 12th century, the gardens wrap around a central artificial lake, which supplies water to irrigate the surrounding orchards and groves. A 19th-century pavilion stands on the shore, against the backdrop of the Atlas mountains. Stroll around the lake, taking in the pavilion from a number of angles, and explore the gardens of palms, fruit, and olive trees.

  • A pretty typical garden space for Marrakech. There is a large paved walking area where you will find many vendors. The best part of this location is the sunrise view around the man-made pond area. The water is not clean, but the view and photo opportunities over it are very nice.
  • A nice location for pretty views and a chill vibe. The Atlas Mountain view was beautiful. 70 DH not worth seeing pavilion. Camel rides near the entrance were fun.
  • Awesome place to relaxe, each time I want to calm my spirit and to have inspiration or even to contemplate the sky with it’s greatness I came here. Menara Gardens is a big garden full of olive trees with a huge reservoir full of big fish, don’t forget to bring with something to feed them.
  • Charming place Advice ☝️ : Best time to visit this place at sunny day for more enjoying the view 🙂❤
  • I often workout there. It is an amazing place. I feed the fish and enjoy sun
