Overview of Menara Gardens

Initially, the gardens were created in the 12th century by the Almohad dynasty, and by the 16th century a swimming pool and a pavilion near it appeared on the territory, which is called the "Observation Lighthouse" (Reservoir Beacon). The area of the territory is 88 hectares.

Since 1985, the Mena Gardens have been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The pool was created to irrigate the garden using technology dubbed "Hettara", as well as to train the army of Almohads. The gardens of Menara are similar to the Agdal Gardens, where there are two similar pools.

The Menara Gardens offer beautiful views of the Atlas Mountains. This place, along with the Koutoubia Mosque, is considered one of the symbols of Marrakech.
