I have to admit I was completely taken in by the postcard image of this place. Gullible me!
I walked to the Agdal Gardens - open only two days a week - from Jemaa El Fna ... walked and walked and walked! The network of uneven gravel 'roads' is not kind to feet.
This place is part of the royal residence and truly much ado about nothing.
The day I was there, the main pavilion was roped off, so it wasn't possible to get the postcard picture of the Atlas Mountains.
The main pond, in which the 19th-century Sultan Mohammed IV tragically drowned while rowing with his son, was filled with grit and algae.
Blazing sun, blistering heat and nothing much to see.
Pretty on postcards; dull in reality. Complete waste of time and energy.
