Awesome scenery. I would recommend to go there before sunset to get even more spectacular views. but note that There is no much to see more than a nice construction and the pond. more »
A pretty typical garden space for Marrakech. There is a large paved walking area where you will find many vendors. The best part of this location is the sunrise view around the man-made pond area. The water is not clean, but the view and photo opportunities over it are very nice.
