Andalucian Gardens

The Andalucian Gardens are not as old as they might give the impression of being — they belong to the 20th century and were laid out be the French colonial authorities. But despite that historical background, they do have a distinct non-French feeling today, especially with the dominance of Moroccans here.
The gardens have another attraction, the Museum of Moroccan Arts. While the indoor exhibition is laid out like most Moroccan museums, there are some nice arrangements with colourful and traditional antique doors in the walls near the entrance to the gardens.
