The Moroccan city of Tangier lies on the North African Coast where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Mediterranean Sea. With its close proximity to Europe, the city is an interesting mix of African, Spanish and French culture. Tangier is rich with history and also boasts fantastic beaches – making it a top choice holiday destination if you’re looking for a sunny break with exceptional character.
There is plenty to see and do in Tangier; however the best way to set off exploring is simply by taking a stroll down the coast. However if you want to learn about Tangier’s history, the Kasbah Museum is a great place to start. The museum is the former sultan’s palace and is home to a number of Phoenician artefacts as well as spectacular grounds. Or you could visit the American Legation, a cultural centre that has a museum which exhibits a large collection of art and historical artefacts.
There are plenty of souks to explore including the Casa Barata – a market which sells nearly everything. You’ll also find plenty of restaurants where you can enjoy authentic Moroccan cuisine or simply sit back and relax with a traditional mint tea as you watch the world go by.
