Agdal Gardens Marrakech
The Agdal Gardens are gardens of approximately 400 hectares located just south of the Royal Palace and the medina, and include groves of orange, lemon, fig, apricot and pomegranate trees. The name originates from the Berber language, meaning “walled meadow”. The Agdal Gardens were made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985.
The gardens were created as an orchard in the 12th century and are irrigated by a sophisticated system of pools and ditches that are fed by underground channels that bring water from many kilometres away in the Atlas Mountains.
The gardens are open to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays.
