Marraquexe

Acerca da cidade

Porta de entrada para o deserto e para o sul de Marrocos, Marraquexe é deslumbrante como nenhuma outra cidade imperial daquele país. As suas ruas rosa-encarniçadas e as vielas cheias de sons, imagens, cheiros e vida. A temperatura de verão normalmente deixa os turistas prostrados. Neste sentido, há que visitar a cidade nos períodos de menos calor, de manhã cedo ou entardecer, e no inverno, já que as temperaturas nesta estação são amenas, embora caiam significativamente à noite devido à aragem fria proveniente do Atlas. A Djemaa El-Fna – Assembleia dos Mortos – não é nada do que o nome sugere. De dia é um mercado bastante frequentado, mas é ao final do dia que o espaço anima ainda mais com a chegada de diversos entertainers. Este caótico circo outdoor oferece um microcosmos do que há me mais exótico e Marrocos. Os visitantes aglomeram-se em torno de cada artista. Praticamente todas as visitas guiadas a Marraquexe têm início na mesquita Koutoubia do século XII, com o seu minarete a presidir à Djemaa. Este minarete, coroado por uma lanterna com três esferas douradas, é o exemplar mais antigo e purista da arquitectura Almohads. Os dois monumentos mais deslumbrantes datam do século XVI. Descontraia os olhos e relaxe na madrassa Ben Youssef, a maior escola corânica do norte de África. Até os mais cépticos ficam deslumbrados com os túmulos Saadian, cujo interior é semelhante ao interior de Alhambra em Granada. A vista do terraço do Palácio Badi – agora em ruinas – é majestosa. Nas redondezas encontramos o Palácio Bahia que data do século XIX, um espaço belo e ornamentado com jardins com fontes e locais de relaxamento. Aproveite as horas mais ensolaradas para visitar os jardins Menara e relaxar no simpático pavilhão à beira lago. Marraquexe é uma cidade barulhenta, poeirenta e caótica. Mas também é um banquete visual e sensorial de cores, culturas, arquitectura e design que nos permite contactar com o exótico e entusiasmante sabor a África a poucas horas de avião de várias cidades europeias.

A Taste of Marrakech: Inside the Medina

dia 1 - Tour
We kick off this Marrakech medina tour and food experience at the beautiful and legendary Djemaa El-Fna square, home to almost a millennium of trading, bargaining, eating, and mingling. You’ll feel the history, tradition, and culture instantly, and after an initial briefing, we’ll wander off into the small streets branching off from the square.

We kick off this Marrakech medina tour and food experience at the beautiful and legendary Djemaa El-Fna square, home to almost a millennium of trading, bargaining, eating, and mingling. You’ll feel the history, tradition, and culture instantly, and after an initial briefing, we’ll wander off into the small streets branching off from the square.

Along the way, we’ll stop at hidden local shops that most tourists won’t find, to taste a few of the numerous different versions of olives, and snack on nuts and other typical Moroccan treats, before heading off towards the poultry/beef market to see how the locals shop and bargain. Sampling all kinds of food in Marrakech is a fascinating insight into the local life and traditions, and with all the different kinds of places your guide will take you, you’ll see many different sides to the part it has to play in Marrakech culture.

From there, we’ll head to one of the most popular sections – the spice section! Moroccan cuisine is known for its vibrant spices, and here you’ll learn how the spices are used in traditional cuisine, how Marrakech became such a popular spot for spice trading, and get inspired to recreate Moroccan culinary masterpieces when you get home. The spice market will totally enchant you with its exotic smells and bold colors from the likes of cumin, saffron, ginger, pepper, turmeric…we could go on, but you’d best just travel to Marrakech and see for yourself!

We continue our Moroccan food odyssey through the souks, where we’ll discover the many traditional types of bread, learn how nomadic communities preserved meat for periods of scarcity and wars, perhaps try a cow hoof or sheep’s head, and stop by to try some Ghoulal. We’ll end up in the square where, after seeing all the fresh ingredients of the souks and markets, we’ll enjoy a traditional Moroccan dinner amid the bustling World Heritage listed Djemaa El-Fna at its peak. Surrounded by people, snakes and their charmers, monkeys and their mischief, the atmosphere is hard to beat. We’re pretty sure this will be an experience that’ll stick with you for a very long time.

Meeting/pick-up point: Outside Café France in Djemaa El-Fna. As you walk into Djemaa El-Fna through the main entrance this is a 3-storey café on the right side of the square. All through Djemaa El-Fna there are fake guides who will try and convince you to do a tour with them, so please make sure that you find the official guide who will be holding an Urban Adventures sign or badge and be waiting for you in front of the café.
Start/opening time: At 6pm.
End/closing time: At 9:30pm.
Drop-off location: Djemaa El-Fna Square.
Languages: English.

Tunes

Acerca da cidade

Com um areal desconcertante, aroma a jasmim e brisa do mar, Tunes reinventou-se e assume-se como uma ambiciosa e moderna capital árabe. A cidade faz questão de preservar as suas tradições mediterrânicas bem como as suas raízes árabes e africanas. É uma atitude que se reflete na arquitetura, com a antiga Medina árabe, paredes meias com a Ville Nouvelle colonial. Como qualquer outra metrópole árabe, a Medina é o centro histórico e espiritual da cidade. As suas ruas entrelaçadas povoadas de vendedores e de transportadores de mercadoria são envolvidas por um aroma a especiarias. O contraste com as palmeiras e das esplanadas da avenida Habib Bourguiba da Ville Nouvelle não poderia ser maior. Anciãos com o vestuário tradicional observam trabalhadores de fato enquanto se cruzam com jovens de jeans e t-shirts: assim é Tunes. Nos subúrbios não poderá perder o Museu Bardo e as impressionantes e misteriosas ruinas da antiga Cartago, de onde Hannibal partiu com os seus elefantes em direção aos Alpes. Nos arredores de Tunes encontra igualmente a bonita localidade de Sidi Bou Said, que serviu de inspiração para muitos artistas, bem como as belas praias de areia branca de La Marsa. Tunes é uma cidade vibrante e com história e orgulhosa da sua herança cultural com influências orientais e ocidentais.
