Garden of Ménara
Arranged under the dynasty of Almohades, Ménara is a vast planted garden of olive-trees with approximately 45 min with foot of the place Jamaa El Fna (center of Marrakech). In the middle of this garden, a large basin at the bottom of a house is used as water tank to irrigate the cultures. It is a very peaceful place, away from the tumult of the city. It is thus a place privileged for the walks.

The basin is supplied with water thanks to an old hydraulic system of more than 700 years, which conveys water since the mountains located at 30 km approximately of Marrakech. This basin allows the irrigation of the olive grove.
