  • Medina

    Tangier Things to Do

    Tangiers medina is quite small in comparison with other Moroccan cities. The walled city runs up the side of the hill to the kasbah. You can enter the medina from the Grand Socco through the gate and into Rue as-Siaghin. This used to be the old Jewish quarter where a gold market used to operate.

  • Grand Socco

    Tangier Things to Do

    The Grand Socco (a French-Spanish hybrid for the Big Square) is the best point of departure for an exploration of the medina and souks. Thanks largely to personal interest from King Mohammed VI, this former market square underwent a makeover in 2005. A large marble fountain is now encircled by park benches and grass areas shaded by large palm...

  • Kasbah - Fort

    Tangier Things to Do

    This was my first-ever visit to the Tangier Kasbah, the ancient fortifications are impressive but modernised buildings have sprung up inside the fortress and vehicles demand access through the narrow streets which were only designed to accommodate carts, mules, horses and pedestrians. The original palace is now the museum ( 10 dirhams admission)...

  • Beach

    3 out of 5 stars

    Tangier Things to Do

    Tangier displays one of the largest beaches that I saw in Morocco. The weather in mid September was good, but the beach was empty. Why? Cold water? Dangerous sea? Maybe both, but the emptiness and the abandoned look were not attractive.

  • Camels

    Tangier Things to Do

    4 They smell poorly, not sure why anyone would ever fall in love with them. THey have buck teeth, they are built funny, but we had fun. We decided that we had to ride a camel just to experience it, and I can tell you it is a weird sensation when the thing tries to get up, you feel like you are going to fall off and once it is up, it is...

    Tangier Things to Do

    Opened from Sunday to Saturday except Tuesday (9-13 / 15-18) This ancient palace of the sultan was established under the kingdom of Moulay ismail and it knew different expansions through the next centuries. This palace has very beautiful apartments dressed in carved mosaic and plaster and it is decorated with a patio bordered by marble...

  • Petit Socco

    Tangier Things to Do

    Rue Siaghine meanders downhill to the Petit Socco (Little Square). In the heart of the medina, this was the meeting place of choice for many of the writers, painters, and other creative types who breezed through the city from the 1930s to 1950s. The coffee houses surrounding the square once served up much sleazier offerings but are today pleasant...

    Tangier Things to Do

    Granted, I'm not American and 99% of my friends aren't either - but I'm still amazed that not one of my friends who have visited Morocco has visited the American Legation in Tangier. A working legation from 1821 until 1956, it is now a museum and serves to illustrates through art, furniture, maps (by Mercator), carpets, letters & objets d'art the...

    If you are not likely to meet camels very often this is an opportunity to see them, touch them, ride on them, take pictures of them.

  • Didn't You Want to Visit Tangier?

    For most tourists the reason for being in Morocco is to visit Tangier.So it was with us on a 2 day "tour". Tangier is a bustling city with bulges of modernity oozing out from a core of North African substance. Its more modern aspects comfort the sightseer but it is the other stuff and the admixture that are thr attraction. There are no old "wonders...

  • Asilah is Quiet and Colorful

    Asilah was unexpected. It was a time-killer on our trip, but has its charm. I understand that experienced do-it-yourself travellers can find decent accomodations here. It is 40 km from Tangier and could be a base from which to go to that city for day trips. (We have tips under the Asilah city name).

  • Go On to Cape Spartel

    Less than 1 mile from the Caves of Hercules is Cape Spartel (5 miles from Tangier). It is the northwest tip of Africa, marked by a century old lighthouse. The eucalyptus and cacti show heavy evidences of wind-weathering. A view out to sea reveals parallel green and blue striping which the "learned guide" states is due to the mixing of the Atlantic...

  • Go to the Grottes d'Hercule (Caves of...

    Near the Northernmost point of Africa facing 7 miles further north its stony counterpart Gibraltar, are Cape Spargel and a mile away the Caves of Hercules. The caves are partly erosion and partly man-made (as a source of stone). When tides are overly high the caves are under water. The floors are wet in places at all times and there were empty...

  • Tombs, marabouts and storks

    The Chellah Necropolis is described as the most beautiful of Moroccan ruins. The walls give the impression of a medina, but in fact this place, situated south of Rabat, has been abandoned since 1154. Almost a thousand years before that, Chellah was a thriving city and port. Best time to visit is about an hour before sunset, the colours are...

    Tanger has a lot of interesting places to visit, especially the mosques, which you will find everywhere in town. You can compare to Europe (or other parts of the world) where they having café’s in every street. Here you will find in almost every street a mosque. There are also lots of other things to see but I can’t remember the names or details...
