Overview of Majorelle Garden

The garden has been created for forty years. Surrounded by walls, it consists of a maze of intersecting alleys and intertwining levels and buildings in the Moorish Art Deco style. In 1980, the park was planned to be demolished and a residential complex built in its place, but Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berger decided to save the park by buying it out.

The garden is an incredible combination of bright colors and exotic plants. The garden is full of cacti, palm trees, bamboo and other tropical plants. The garden also has a large pond filled with colorful fish, a small stream and many birds. The total area of the garden is 0.9 hectares.

The Majorelle Garden

The most striking feature of the garden is the bright blue walls that surround it. This blue color is known as Majorelle Blue and was created by the artist Jacques Majorelle himself. The blue color is said to be inspired by the blue of the Moroccan sky and the Mediterranean Sea.

The Majorelle Garden

There are many sculptures, fountains and other works of art in the garden. One of the most famous sculptures is the bronze statue of Yves Saint Laurent, which was created in his honor. Various events and workshops are often held in the garden.
