The magical medina of Tangier
Tangier's central spot, the Grand Socco, straddles the old and new part of the city. This bustling square is a popular meeting place for local residents. The area around the square boasts may French-style cafés. Take a seat and order a delicious café au lait or a tasty crêpe.
The medina of Tangier is a feast of aromas and colours. It's a great opportunity to learn more about local traditions and crafts. Explore the maze of small alleys lined with shops and market stalls. This is also the best place to shop for exotic souvenirs, such as a traditional Moroccan rug. The colourful and car-free medina is enclosed by the walls of a 15th century Portuguese fort. Perfect for an afternoon stroll.
