Tamatave, la grande ville de l’Est
Tamatave, bordé par l’Océan Indien, est la plus grande ville de l’Est et surtout le premier port de Madagascar.
Tamatave, un puissant héritage colonial
Situé à 353 kilomètres de la capitale, Tamatave possède un passé historique important qui ressurgit à travers ses larges boulevards rectilignes et ses merveilleuses bâtisses à colonnades juxtaposées aux quatre coins de la ville. Bénéficiant d’un climat tropical humide, la ville connaît de temps à autres quelques crachins qui n’affecteront pas le plaisir de s’y promener. Les innombrables pousse-pousse aux couleurs bariolées égaieront ces journées de balades, ponctuées de haltes pour contempler les nombreuses variétés de plantes que l’on y trouve, comme les banians sacrés. Dans la ville, une agréable senteur tropicale baigne dans l’atmosphère, c’est l’arôme abondant de la vanille et du girofle, en partance dans le port international.
Tamatave, des lieux à découvrir
Ville très cosmopolite, Tamatave est reconnue pour son importante population d’origine chinoise. Ces influences se ressentent également dans l’excellence des tables et restaurants locaux. Les fins gourmets ne manqueront pas de déguster ces diverses spécialités orientales réalisées de mains de maîtres par les descendants des premiers immigrés chinois, délices et curiosités au menu. Découvrir Tamatave, c’est aussi se promener dans ses marchés « bazary », où une animation typique est quotidienne, sans oublier de flâner sur l’Avenue de l’Indépendance aux pieds des majestueux palmiers royaux, entre la gare et le front de mer.
