Create an itinerary including Boucharouite Museum
Treasuring all kinds of folk art, Boucharouite Museum is known for its collection of woven and embroidered carpets, also known as rag rugs. See how Moroccan and Berber women from remote villages--bereft of elementary education--find the means to express their creativity by weaving countless knots into intricate color schemes. These women use pieces of their ragged clothes to create a rag rug--the ancient recycling technique earned their product the nickname "the carpet for the poor." The museum often hosts inspiring special events, such as "duels" between Berber storytellers and French comedians.

  • Museum where you can see interesting pieces of artistic carpets. Although what I have enjoyed the most was the building itself. It has very nice atrium and amazing terrace with even better views. It might be a bit tricky getting there, but it’s feasible with google maps ;).
  • Beautiful museum with one of a kind weavings, highly recommend drinking coffee on the terrace after exploring the gallery.
