The pavillion and the great water reservoir were built by Saadian Sultan Abd er Rahman in 1870.
I visited Marrakesh in winter-time and the temperature was quite agreeable. However, in the heat of summer, those gardens must have been a veritable oasis and a welcome escape from the city.

Menara Gardens

Menara Garden, Marrakesh

Surrounded by olive groves, Menara Gardens makes for a very scenic change from the bustle of central Marrakesh.
Even though the water of the pool in front of the pavilion looks somewhat murky. it’s still one of the most romantic places the city has to offer.
You can see the door in the red wall on both photos, by the way.
