ANIMA is a magical place of sensuality, of wonder, of contemplation, of joy, of healing, and of inspiration. Created by the famous Austrian artist André Heller, this unusual garden/museum of more than three hectares amazes with its exuberance, its monumental sculptures by Pablo Picasso, Keith Haring, Alexander Calder or Auguste Rodin and other colorful works of art which are enthroned in the heart of a richly wooded park. More than just a visit, this lively museum offers a sensational experience with its hundreds of types of plants and trees, from bamboo over palms and cacti.
Visitors stroll along shady paths, between precious trees and shrubs, miracles of flowers and fragrances, pavilions and sculptures. Only a few kilometers outside of crowded and often noisy Marrakech, ANIMA offers an intoxicating view of the often-snow-capped Atlas Mountains with the 4,167 meter high Jbel Toubkal. Furthermore, two museum rooms present artists from around the world. Onsite, the Café Paul Bowles offers refined Moroccan cuisine and international meals. All meals are made with spices and ingredients grown in the garden – like saffron, herbs or olives.
