The garden an exceptional natural setting
It is at the foot of the High Atlas, at an altitude of 840 m and 35 km south-east of Marrakech in the Ourika valley, that the first Biological Garden of Aromatic and Medicinal Plants in Morocco has been established since 1998.
On 1 hectare, there are about fifty aromatic, medicinal and ornamental plants.
Discover the richness of the botany of Morocco and the region, learn to spot the plants, taste them, smell them, touch them.
A exceptional garden in the heart of the Ourika valley
The bio-aromatic garden of the Ourika valley represents an important ecological nature reserve in the region.
The Bio-Aromatic Garden of Ourika
The Jardin Bio-Aromatique d'Ourika, the first of its kind in Morocco, is open to the public for guided or individual visits during which you can discover the plants, learn more about their virtues and uses, phyto-aromatherapy, regional traditions... The Garden also offers traditional meals to order. Relaxing footbaths and wellness or cooking activities can also be organised.
Why The garden
Beautiful garden with a thousand and one smells! Small spaces where to take tea and cakes offered. We chose to drink it under the nomads' tent. The sanitary facilities are incredibly clean, everything is very well thought out. We regretted not having lunch there.
A wonderful oase on our way. The side street didn't inspired us but the surprise was big. A real paradise of nature with very good food. We were lucky to pass by and to get two excellent tajine for a very fair price. But you actually need to reserve first 48h prior. A MUST GO
Tasty lunch here, beautiful relaxing garden. Will visit for longer again.
Excellent lieu de détente ,un accueil chaleureux et des repas exquis
