Anyone know the date of the Jewish Moussem in Demnate?

by suzy301

This event is listed in the LP as taking place in July, but I can't find any specific dates online.
Otherwise, is Demnate worth a day trip from Marrakech?

Re: Anyone know the date of the Jewish Moussem in Demnate?

Hi, Suzy301:

I do not have any knowledge about a “Jewish Moussem” in Demnate, nor do I know if there actually is one. I would think that most of the jews would have left the region after 1948.
But I have been to Demnate. I visited the town in 1992, in order to explore the large Sunday souk that takes place on the outskirts of town. There weren’t any other travelers in Demnate while I was there. I can say that the local people were friendly and it was an easy place to roam around in, no hassles but not a lot to do there.

To make a decent day of it I recommend renting a car and going to Cascade douzoud or even better to Ait Bougoumez valley as well and even make a 2 day trip of it - theres a good and cheap place to stay at Cascade Douzoud and there are a number of gites around Ait Bougoumez - theres not much to see at Demnate but there is a natural bridge and a place to try and find dinosaur prints - you could make a good circuit if you wished of say 3 days by taking the pass that then goes down from Demnate to near Skoura and coming back via Ouarzazate, visiting Ait Benhaddhou and Telouet on the way back to Marrakech. all would be stunning route and stunning 3 days of scenery and sights.

as for jewish festivals, I know that there are still some jews around or jews that come specially back to special places of importance - for example there is a jewish cemetary near Telouet that on a special day each a number of jews come to make a special celebration.

Sometimes it is quite hard to find dates for these sort of occasions - inside knowledge that even the tourist offices cant help with....

Travel Tips for Marrakesh

Go to the old part of town. ...

by Joyce_Lee

Go to the old part of town. That's where all the markets are and even if you don't want to buy anything it is something to see. Going into the market with the smell of the spices surrounding your senses. Have the oranges~they are just so sweet.

Ali Baba's cave

by Bigjones about Le souk

This is were you can find everything. In Marrakesh, the souk is pretty big and you can get lost very easily. But generally, you can find the same kinds of shops at the same place. For example, all "babouche" stalls together, the same for "tajines", spices, lamps, ceddar wood, "cheichs", bread, fruits and vegetables, make up, clothes etc. You can buy whatever you want but be aware that you should bargain. And this can take a lot of time and be very annoying. The sellers usually consider tourists as a "money pump" and try to get as much money as they can from them. They begin with a very expensive price. The best thing to do according to me is to know exactly the amount of money you want to spend on something and never exceed this amount. Then you can begin with a lower price and increase it until your limit is reached while the seller decreases his price. May be you can find an agreement very easily, may be not. I heard that it can sometimes take a few days. If you disagree, you can say that you want to check prices in another shop. Sometimes they let you go, sometimes they agree with your price.
Like it or not, it's a local custom ;-)

Tajine

by tini58de about Local Cuisine

Tajine is Morocco's favourite dish and it is usually served on an earthenware platter with a triangular lid on top of it! It is a sort of stew made from vegetables and meats and when we had a tajine, we had a mutton tajine! It surely was lovely and VERY delicious!

Koutoubia mosque and orange gardens

by angiebabe

just sitting on a seat in amongst the orange trees in the Koutoubia gardens and breathing in the beautiful scent of the orange flowers is an enjoyable thing to do!!breath in slow and deeply! when the roses are in bloom is another delightful time to be in amongst the vegetation also!

for some interesting info on the mosque - very significant mosque to Marrakech and Morocco and the Andalucian world - an Almohad sultan got this going in 1147 to celebrate his win over the Almoravids and set about to build one of the largest mosques in the western muslim world.
This mosque later served as a model for the La Giralda in Seville and the Hassan Tower in Rabat.
The prayer hall can fit up to 20,000 people!! and an interesting thing to read about the tower is that its 70 metre height obeys the Almohad architecture canons of its height equalling five times its width.

Little girls coming back from school

by Bigjones

Each day at about the same time, we could see a flow of kids coming back from school. Girls particularly attracted our attention with their white uniform and large smiles, they held each other's hand to walk together.
