Menara Gardens (Jardin de la Ménara) Tours and Activities

star-3.5
8 Reviews
Menara Gardens (Jardin de la Ménara)
Just minutes from the bustling medina of Marrakech, the Menara Gardens (Jardin de la Ménara) offer a tranquil oasis with olive groves, towering palms, and citrus trees. Arranged around a 12th-century pavilion, the botanical gardens feature a large lake and a stunning view of the distant Atlas Mountains. 
 
The Basics
The Menara Gardens are often included on sightseeing tours of Marrakech, and a full-day tour might also visit central attractions such as Koutoubia Mosque, Bahia Palace, and Jemaa el-Fna square. Another popular choice is to combine a stroll around the Menara Gardens with a visit to the equally beautiful Majorelle Garden.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Entrance to the gardens is free but there is an admission fee for the pavilion, a popular spot for picnicking.
  • There are no facilities at the park, so bring everything you need, including water and sunscreen.
  • The Menara Gardens are wheelchair accessible.
  • Camel rides are sometimes available at the Menara Gardens.
 
How to Get to There
The Menara Gardens are in the Nouvelle Ville (New Town). A horse-drawn carriage (calèche) from Jemaa el-Fna makes a relaxing journey; alternatively, a taxi will get you there in 10 minutes.
 
When to Get There
Outside of the pavilion, there is little shade at the Menara Gardens, so it’s best to avoid visiting during the hottest part of the day. For the most beautiful views, time your visit to watch the sunset with a backdrop of the Atlas Mountains.
 
History of the Menara Gardens
The Menara Gardens were laid out during the 12th century by Abd al-Mu'min of the Almohad dynasty and initially served as a reservoir, fed by aqueducts. The pavilion was added later, during the Saadi Dynasty in the 16th century, and was used as a summer residence for the royal family into the 19th century.
Address: Avenue la Menara, Marrakech, Marrakech-Safi, Morocco

The origins of Le Jardin Secret hark back to the second half of the sixteenth century, when the Saadian Sultan Moulay ‘Abd-Allah commenced upon the urbanization of what is now the Mouassine district. the palace, which stood on the grounds of Le Jardin Secret, was destroyed toward the end of the seventeenth century
