Located south of the Palais Dar El Makhzen, and designed in the twelfth century under the reign of the Almohad ruler Abdelmoumen, the Agdal Gardens know their present form from the nineteenth century, when they are closed by an enclosure .
The panoramic terrace of Dar El Hana, situated on the largest garden pond (Es Sala), offers fabulous views of the mountains of the chain of the High Altas. In summer, this area allows you to enjoy the freshness and rest in the shade of apricot trees and olive trees.
