The Majorelle Gardens are located in Marrakesh, in Gueliz. Majorelle is named after its builder, the French painter Jacques Majorelle, who began its foundation in 1924.
In 2017, the French painter dyed the garden buildings a bright blue color, which surprised the residents of the red city. Later, the French painter was involved in a traffic accident, which resulted in him being transported to France, where he died. Now the place has become one of the most important landmarks of the city of Marrakech, where the building surrounding the garden has been converted into a museum of Islamic arts, and the garden contains rare plants and flowers coming from the five continents, especially various types of cactus plants, beautiful fish ponds, and a museum of the history of the French painter.
