When in Marrakech most of your sightseeing will be within the confines of the walls of the medina. However, the Majorelle Garden is a must-see in the new city of Gueliz. The house originally belonged to a painter who used this vibrant shade of blue to paint his house and garden walls. The gardens are impressive with a great many varieties of trees and plants. The blue and yellow contrast is striking and you will most definitely take a whole lot of photos. Try to come early before the tour groups arrive so you can savor the oasis that this garden provides.
