Tangier attracts around one million visitors every year. In summer, it is one of the few Moroccan towns that offer a degree of respite from the heat. Tangier is also standing at a cultural and commercial cross-roads, and a stepping stone between Europe and Africa, Tangier is the gateway to Morocco.

The Grand Socco

A huge permanent market where merchants and peasant women sell locally produced fruits, vegetables and poultry. Its location and the various economic activities carried on there make the Grand Socco Place, the busiestpublic square in Tangier.

The Petit Socco

A small square bordered by cafés and old residences. It leads into the "Rue de la Marine ", the Medina’s busiest street. A platform standing to the east of the Medina offers a splendid view over the port and across the bay of Tangier.

Dar El Makhzen

Today, this place built during the reign of Sultan Moulay Ismaïl in the 17th century, houses Tangier’s Museum of Moroccan Arts. Rooms contain exhibit of carpets, jewelry, silks and ceramics...

Cape Spartel

The round trip from Tangier to Cape Spartel, to the west of the city can be made in a day. The most convenient route is the road that turns from modern Tangier across the city’s residential district, known as the Mountain Jebel El Kebir. In the 17th century, this wooded hill provides cover for the Moors in their battles against the Portuguese and the English.

Hercules' Caves

In classical mythology, Hercules rested in these caves after completing his labors. Legend has it that it was Hercules himself who created the Straits of Gibraltar by pushing aside the mountains to form Jebel Tarik (Gibraltar) on the north side and Jebel Moussa on the south, in Africa.
