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. Use our Marrakech trip planner to visit Menara Gardens and Pavilion on your trip to Marrakech, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • The place is beautiful. The high atlas mountains at the background are breathtaking. My children loved feeding the fish with some leftover bread from lunch. The area is surrounded by presumably olive trees, many thousands of them. I have seen people doing picnic in the garden. A fun family place for outing. I recommend
  • Beautiful and inspirational. Definitely worth stopping by, the colours and the plants/cacti and like nothing else. It does get pretty busy, so strongly advise to book ahead and avoid queues getting in. There is a little cafe at the end, worth stopping in for light refreshments etc
