A lovely place to visit if you just want to go for a stroll and escape busy Marrakech for a while, very close to Menara Mall. On entering there are couple of small shops selling drinks, snacks and souvenirs. You can see the Atlas Mountains from afar and there is a small house next to a huge artificial lake you can visit, but it costs money if you’re a tourist. Overall really good to escape the typical tourist areas of Marrakech and sit down or have a walk.
We didn't see all but was worth a couple of hours visit . Quiet amble through the pathway lined with a few cafes and stalls selling sunhats, balls etc. The one dhop i did buy water eas treble the price than in the city centre but the small cafes reasonable if you barter... Tourists charged more than the locals. The attaction was the large enclosed pond ehere everyone bought bread to throw to the fish who poped up in shoal to feed. Pleassnt pkace to visit and relax under the trees wth a picnic.... No entry charge.
This is a good place to relax and just chill out for little while from the hustle and bustle of the souks and tourists spots
So quiet and nice. Palm and olive trees, desert all around and wiew of Atlas mountain...inestimable!
Spacious garden.. nice for long walks and relaxing. Beautiful scenery, very peaceful. There is also a small place to get juice and snacks and tourist types of gifts while you are there.
Very beautiful garden with olive trees and a large central pool for the supply of trees. Amazing what was created here about 900 years ago.
A nice break in the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, the raised house offers a beautifull view of the sorrounding area and the atlas mountains far in the horison. Good place to let the kids run about.
Loved it! The sun was scorching hot but it was fun all the same! Beautiful place! Definitely a must visit!
I don't know how this got so many stars. It's not that clean, there's a big reflecting pool that's a bit dirty. Maybe if you can find parking nearby it's worth a five minute walk. There are some cheap souvenirs being sold. Definitely not the highlight of this city
Nice place to visit, there are small kiosk where you can buy cold drink. Before visit have some water with you it's very hot here specially a warm day. The view is simply superb and highly recommend for those who love to take pictures. Have fun :)
