Le Jardin Secret, Morocco
Le Jardin Secret is opening its doors to the public for the first time in its history. The origins of the complex date back to the Saadian Dynasty, more than 400 years ago, and rebuilt in the mid-19th century, Le Jardin Secret has been the home of some of Morocco and Marrakech's most important political figures.
The exotic garden is part of the great tradition of stately Arab-Andalusian and Moroccan palaces, and as a result, visitors can discover its gardens and buildings, which are outstanding examples of Islamic art and architecture. Le Jardin Secret is also filled with plants from all over the world, recalling the experimental aspect of the great gardens of Marrakech.
The Islamic garden was restored following the likely 18th century layout. Closely linked to riad structures, this type of garden is an oasis of peace, where you can indulge in idleness and contemplation thanks to the shade of the trees and the intimacy of the enclosed space.
