Located south of the Dar El Makhzen palace, created in the 12th century under the reign of Abd El- Moumen, Almohade King, the Agdal gardens with a surface of 500 ha have been
completed and are surrounded by a wall dating from the 19th century.
The panoramic terrace of Dar El Hana situated on the banks of the largest basin (Es Sala), offers an incredible view of the Atlas mountain range. In summer, this space is cool and you can rest in the shade of the apricot and olive trees.
The Khettaras, a well thought-out system based on the use of many reservoirs fed by the High Atlas waters, make a perfect irrigation of the garden possible. Initially, the basins of the Agdal gardens as well as that of the Menara, were huge reservoirs which irrigated the garden and also were used to regulate the flow of the Khettaras and Séguias.
