Marakshi couples and families love to stroll in the Menara gardens or Jardins de la Menara. The beautiful pavilion on the edge of the big basin reflecting the Atlas Mountains is the emblem for these gardens, which were created during the 12th century by Almohad sultans. In its present state, the pavilion dates from the 19th century, but its original construction dates from the Saadian period in the 16th century. The basin is filled by a mountain stream and, thanks to a genius irrigation system, the fruit-trees and the olive trees get what they need and no more. Each night, the show Son & Lumière Al Menara takes place.
