A natural territory moulded by Man
The Palm grove of Marrakech is a fine example of the richness of Morocco's cultural and natural heritage. These hectares of land have long been a driving force for the country's economy. It was during the 11th century that the sovereign Sultan of Morocco, Youssef Ben Tachfine, decided to create this immense oasis at the foot of the Atlas Mountains in order to exploit the local groundwater resources. Many crops have thus emerged such as dates, palm hearts, palm oil and wine and wood. Over time, the Palm grove has become a popular place for tourists, especially European tourists. Since then, many hotel complexes have developed to transform the district into a luxurious destination very popular with high-end tourism.
