    Mazara del Valle

    November 29, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    É o último dia na Sicília. Depois da habitual manhã de trabalho, passámos pela câmara municipal onde a diretora da escola, também vereadora da educação, nos apresenta os planos da autarquia e nos acompanha a uma escola profissional onde comemos uma refeição deliciosa preparada pelos alunos de cozinha e servida pelos alunos de mesa e bar.
    À tarde e ao jantar ficámo-nos por Mazara. Uma cidade dividida em quatro quarteirões diferentes - árabe, judeu, espanhol e siciliano - em que as várias culturas coabitam de forma equilibrada e sem quezílias. Um fim de dia bem disposto com um final descontraído.

    Mazara de Vello

    May 30, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    So after leaving the Egadi Islands, only because our permit expired, we headed back Sicily, we debated whether to go back Marsala or a little further to Mazara. There was very little wind so we decided to go to Mazara but, and I think this was just because I had enjoyed a week of light winds and very short trips, the wind picked up and we ended up coming into the port in force7-8 hilarious! Thankfully there were Marineros to assist us and we were between two other yachts the owners of which were not around so we could use them as fenders to ease ourselves in. Mazara is apparently biggest trawler port on Sicily and it was definitely very commercial but not very many trawlers in the water. The main site in the town was the 11th century Duomo (church) with its baroque makeover from 17century and second the moorish Kasbah with its narrow streets marked with tiles and street art, there were of course lots of other churches. John decided to do an oil change here as there was somewhere to get rid of the waste oil and we were told by a local somewhere to buy some more. We ended up buying the new oil from a family company called L’Armanavi they were brilliant, they didn’t have enough so phoned around, bot the oil delivered to them and then drove us and the oil back to the marina. Can’t fault their customer service! From here we headed along coast and passed Selinunte we had hoped to be able to anchor and go up to the ruins but there was still far too much swell so only photos which means we need to go to Agrigento for ruins there.street art in MazaraRead more

    March 1 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Wir verabschieden uns von Porto Empedocle und fahren für je eine Übernachtung und Stadtbesichtigung nach Sciacca und Mazara del Vallo. Jede dieser Städte hat sehr schöne Ecken und auch manche enge Gasse. Wir sind froh zu Fuß unterwegs zu sein. Heute sind wir im Hafen von Trapani gestrandet, haben uns einen ersten Überblick verschaft und beschlossen, dass es sich lohnt etwas länger zu bleiben.Read more
