Create an itinerary including Menara Gardens and Pavilion
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.

  • Don't expect gardens, as Menara really is a large estate with olive groves and a water reservoir for irrigation purposes. Pleasant to walk around, though there is hardly any shade. At the entrance...

  • The 4 stars are for the people 1000 years ago. The one and only missing star is for: No clean toilet. In so important place when we can connect Morocco - Marrakech - history - water - people - culture to our clients with no clean toilet = minus this important star. Morocco, home sweet home.
  • Fantastic garden. A beautiful place to go and surely a must visit for anyone travelling to Marrakech. It's fresh, full of exotic plants and with lovely colours!
  • Nice monument, worth visiting once. Cute place for kids, you can get bread and feed the fish.
  • It was an amazing place. Beautiful view and really inexpensive. A must see if you are in Marrakech!
