Jardin Majorelle-Yves Saint Laurent Mansion (YSL Gardens) Marrakesh

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) Gardens in Marrakech, Morocco, is a 12-acre oasis located in the heart of the city. 

Surprisingly difficult to photograph, not only because of the amount of people there (trying to do the same as me) but because all the better viewpoints are out of bounds. The official photos could have only been taken when closed, and from other vantage points.

The gardens were founded in 1924 by French painter Jacques Majorelle, and feature a range of exotic trees, plants, and flowers from five continents, as well as an electric-blue art deco villa and a museum devoted to the work of the legendary fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent

Visitors can wander around the grounds and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere, or explore the museum and discover the history of Yves Saint Laurent's work.
