Willemstad

Conquistando a velha cidadela

Curaçau sabe como satisfazer todos os passageirosa bordo de um navio de cruzeiro MSC. Nas suas férias em Curaçau, poderá descobrir as Grutas de Hato, repletas de estalactites, estalagmites e incisões com mais 1500 anos, ou optar por uma excursão ao Parque Nacional de Christoffel para admirar a fauna e a flora locais, típicas do mar das Caraíbas.


Quem pretende apreciar a vida subaquática pode visitar o Seaquarium, onde terá oportunidade de conviver com os simpáticos leões-marinhos. Os fãs de compras descobrirão que Punda, na ponta de Willemstad, é o destino ideal. Esta parte da cidade é um centro comercial histórico e as suas lojas e armazéns estendem-se ao largo de toda a costa. Nesta zona, as casas e oficinas formam vielas estreitas que hoje se destinam exclusivamente à circulação de peões. Entre uma compra e outra, poderá deparar-se com cenas de rara intensidade, perfeitas para imortalizar numa fotografia.

A uma curta distância, esta zona de Willemstad é protegida pela mais importante das oito fortalezas de Curaçau, o Forte Amesterdão. Foi construído em 1635 para defender a entrada do porto e recebeu este nome quando Curaçau estava sob a administração da Companhia das Índias Ocidentais holandesa. Hoje em dia, ainda é possível avistar a bala de canhão disparada pelas tropas do Capitão Bligh embutida na parte sudoeste da muralha, confirmando o passado militar activo do forte. Actualmente, o forte é a sede do governador e inclui uma igreja protestante e um museu.

Mantendo a mesma temática, recomendamos uma visita ao Forte Beekenburg, construído em 1703, na Baía de Caracas, para defender o seu interior e as “águas espanholas”. Apesar de ser usado activamente no século XIX na defesa contra os franceses, os britânicos e os piratas, este forte é um dos mais bem preservados das Caraíbas

      Two of Curaçao's main highlights await the pleasure of your company on a tour that will take you to see both the fascinating underground world of the Hato Caves and, returning to ground level, the wonders of Willemstad's picture-perfect city centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lying just a short drive to the north of Willemstad, the Hato Caves deliver an otherworldly experience of stalagmites, stalactites, limestone formations and, if you're lucky, sightings of long-nosed fruit bats. Returning to the sunshine, you'll then move on to Willemstad to begin your walk through the city centre and its numerous historical buildings. En route to Fort Amsterdam, you'll pass the floating market and colourful quayside houses before crossing the Queen Emma pontoon bridge to reach the other side of Willemstad city. Should the passage of ships down St. Anna Bay force the bridge to open in the middle, you'll take a ferry instead. The 19th-century Riffort stronghold, now an up-market shopping mall, is your last city highlight on this guided stroll back to your ship. If you prefer, you can equally linger a little longer and then make your own way back to the ship when you're good and ready. Please note: the order in which the tour runs may vary. As high temperatures are likely to prevail, guests are recommended to wear a hat. The tour involves some walking at the Hato Caves and in the city centre, for which guests should be suitably fit.

After meeting your guide at the pier, you'll first head for the 5-star Kura Hulanda Resort Hotel, a complex made up of 18th- and 19th-century colonial-style buildings that lend the place a charming historical feel.

Suitable for all ages and perfectly safe, the tour begins with a short drive to the dolphin centre, where you'll then take to the shallow water and step onto a platform to begin your incredible and fully guided encounter with one of the world's most popular creatures. Informed about dolphin anatomy, behaviour and conservation by the friendly staff, you'll get to touch, hug and even plant a kiss on your new pals. Best of all, it's not even necessary to be able to swim, since your dolphin experience takes place with the underwater platform providing your feet with firm support throughout.

                    Colourful and quaint are two attributes that aptly describe both your mode of transport on this tour, a trolley train, and the city you'll be exploring, Curaçao's capital of Willemstad. After taking a taxi to cross the Queen Juliana Suspension Bridge to reach the historical Punda district, you'll then board the open-sided trolley train for a breezy and fully narrated ride through Willemstad's attractive streets with their distinctive Dutch colonial architecture. Enjoy listening to interesting city facts as you make your way past the Queen Emma pontoon bridge and the floating vegetable and wet fish market. A photo stop will be made at the central historical archives, which are housed in the fittingly nicknamed Bolo di Bruid (wedding-cake) mansion, and then again at Pietermaai Cathedral. Back on the trolley train, you'll then continue on past Queen Wilhelmina Park and the 17th-century Waterfort Arches before paying Fort Amsterdam, also built in the 17th century, and the co-located Protestant Church a visit. A taxi will take you back to the ship, but if you prefer to remain in town, you can return to the ship at your own pace. Please note: the tour includes taxi transfers to and from Fort Amsterdam, the trolley-train terminus. Guests choosing to remain in town after the trolley-train ride will be responsible for making their own way back to the ship, which is an approx. 15-minute walk from the town centre. Any taxi transfer fees (approx. US$10 for 1 to 4 passengers) will be payable as an additional expense not covered by the price of the tour. Guests may be able to enter the Cathedral for an inside viewing provided no Mass is being read at the time of the visit.

                  Curaçau

                  Lagos salgados e cactos exuberantes
                  Lagos salgados e cactos exuberantes

                  Ninguém deve perder a oportunidade de visitar a mais singular das ilhas das Caraíbas: Curaçau, com os seus cactos e as suas plantas de folha persistente que delineiam as restantes paisagens das savanas africanas e os seus lagos salgados, onde os flamingos vão descansar.


                  O ambiente subaquático é semelhante ao das restantes ilhas do mar das Caraíbas e também conta com uma interessante barreira de corais. Recomendamos uma visita ao projecto de protecção e melhoria artificial dessa barreira em frente à praia de PortoMarie. À semelhança das restantes ilhas designadas como ilhas ABC” (Aruba, Bonaire e Curaçau) a língua falada é o papiamento. Ouvir este idioma crioulo fascinante, que é uma mistura de português, espanhol e neerlandês, além dos idiomas de origem africana e aruaque, já é uma experiência por si só. Ao fazer um cruzeiro a Curaçau descobrirá um mundo que mistura aromas coloniais espanhóis e holandeses.

                  Os inúmeros edifícios históricos em Willemstad levaram a UNESCO a classificar a cidade como Património da Humanidade. Trata-se do lugar fora da Holanda que possui a maior concentração de arquitectura holandesa do século XIX. Circuitos turísticos interessantes conduzi-lo-ão até às diversas mansões coloniais e às chamadas kasdipal’imaishi, as antigas moradias dos escravos que evocam as aldeias africanas ocidentais.
