Place: Majorelle Garden: Marrakech
Majorelle Garden is a botanical garden situated in the city of Marrakech which is famous for the extensive use of watercolors, especially the bold cobalt blue. It was designed by the French artist Jacques Majorelle in the year 1924 but it was thrown open to public in the year 1947. Ever since, it has been an important tourist attraction in the city. The blue cobalt is mainly used on the many buildings across the garden, mud pots, fountains and gates. Majorelle Garden also houses the Art Museum of Marrakech which displays North African textiles from Saint-Laurent's personal collection, jewelery, ceramic items and paintings by Jacques Majorelle himself. Also carry binoculars along with you as you very well may spot around 15 bird species here which are only found in North African regions.
