In Morocco, an Artists’ Lair With Soul

In Morocco, an Artists’ Lair With Soul | Arts & luxury in Marrakech | Scoop.it

Nestled between trees off a small road in Tahanaout, a village at the foot of the Atlas mountains, Al Maqam is an artists’ colony cum gallery, library and hotel that is unique in Morocco.

 

Al Maqam, which means The Place in Arabic, is the creation of the painter Mohamed Mourabiti who started it more than 10 years ago. 

marrakech's insight:

With "Terre 'Amanar", a socially responsible open air theme park/resort, and "Al Maqam", Tahanaout can boast two of the most interesting alternative projects in Morocco.

The Kutubiyya minbar: The Masterpiece Minbar

The Kutubiyya minbar: The Masterpiece Minbar | Arts & luxury in Marrakech | Scoop.it

The Kutubiyya minbar was probably built in the same workshop that made the famous Córdoba one, for a newly deciphered inscription on its left side states that it was ordered in Córdoba on the first day of Muharram 532 AH (September 19, 1137) for the congregational mosque in Marrakech. Thus it was most probably ordered by the ruling Almoravid sultan, 'Ali ibn Yusuf, son and successor of the Berber amir Yusuf ibn Tashufin, whose long, 36-year reign is generally regarded as one of the most brilliant in the history of the Muslim West.

marrakech's insight:

Completly renovated, the Kutubiyya minbar is now exposed in the premises of the el Badii Palace.

Discovering Africa: Imlil Valley, The Berber Village At The Foot Of The Mountains

Discovering Africa: Imlil Valley, The Berber Village At The Foot Of The Mountains | Arts & luxury in Marrakech | Scoop.it

 Imlil is a small village located in the Atlas Mountains in the Kingdom of Morocco. It is one of the Berber villages along the way, and it lays about 1,700 meters above sea level, thus making it the center of the mountain tourism in Morocco. Imlil relies mainly on terraced agriculture and the brownish Berber villages make a harsh and beautiful contrast to the green terraces.

Jana Pekova's curator insight, June 15, 2013 10:15 AM

Imlil - Mountain destination in the High Atlas Mountains. Great base for many treks in the surrounding areas.
