The idea of creating a garden inside of Oudaya Kasbah belongs to French architect Maurice Tranchant De Lunel (head of antiquities department). In that time there was just a typical yard of caserne in front of palace (today palace is turned to a museum).
By 1920 the garden was completed. The project of Andalusian garden had been made by French landscape architect Jean-Claude Forestier. His previous work was Jardin d’Essais (trial garden of Rabat).
Hard to accept, but even some Rabat citizens make a mistake – they believe Andalusian garden was made centuries ago.
There are gates leading to the garden from the avenue and from Kasbah. So you may enter from both locations.
