The inauguration of this cultural-civilizational space was performed by the Wali of the Marrakech-Safi region, Abdelfattah Bjioui, the president of the Marrakech-Safi region, Ahmed Akhchichine, president of the Fondation nationale des musées (FNM) Mehdi Qotbi, the President of Institut du Monde Arabe (IMA), Jack Lang and CEO of secret Garden, Lauro Milan.
This “wonderful garden” is a “pure splendor right in Marrakech” in harmony with the cultural characteristics of the city. Said Mr. Jack Lang
As almost always in Islamic gardens, there is a source in the middle of the garden. Fountains, marble vanities and basins in the Riad give a light show, while the continuous runoff promotes serenity of the environment.
The origins of the secret garden go back to the second half of the sixteenth century, when Sultan Moulay Abdallah saadien began the urbanization of what is now the Mouassine.
When you visit you will discover a peaceful place where the loudest sounds you’ll hear are those of water and birdsongs. A true represent of outstanding art and Islamic architecture.
