P365 TE Day 27

YSL's Jardin Marjorelle in Marrakesh

Travel Bite: Jardin Marjorelle was created by French painter Jacques Marjorelle, and it was such a destination that it's fame eventually surpassed that of his paintings. He used bright cobalt blue so much that it became known as "marjorelle blue". The jardin has always been open to the public and one of it's frequent visitors was Yves Saint Laurent (YSL). When Jacques Marjorelle died, YSL and his life and business partner Pierre Bergé bought Jardin Marjorelle where they said they have found an unlimited source of inspiration due to the garden's unique colors. Upon YSL's death, his ashes were sprinkled on Jardin Marjorelle and the jardin was donated to The Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent.
