Tangier Morocco City
Tangier is a city Moroccan in northwestern. It is on the Maghreb coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar, where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel. The town is the capital of the Tanger-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region, as well as the Tangier-Assilah prefecture of Morocco. Many civilisations and cultures have influenced the history of Tangier, starting from before the 10th-century BCE. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a nexus for many cultures. In 1923, it was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
The city is currently undergoing rapid development and modernisation. Projects include new tourism projects along the bay, a modern business district called Tangier City Centre, a new airport terminal, and a new football stadium. Tangier’s economy is also set to benefit greatly from the new Tanger-Med port.

Tangier has inspired people for generations with its offering of fascinating history, beautiful scenery and eclectic mix of people. Whether you want to spend time on the lovely beaches, take a mint tea in one of the cafés where Burroughs and Matisse used to sit, or explore the old quarter, this is a place where you should spend time, never just rush through.
The Kasbah, built on the highest point of the city, is divided by the rest of the Medina. The Kasbah Mosque features an octagonal minaret of polychrome majolica. The Sultan’s Palace, Dar El Makhzen, is located here. This superb residence overlooking the sea has marble vaults, cedarwood ceilings and decorations in majolica. It houses the Morocco Museum of Arts and the Museum of Antiquities. The Forbes Museum instead houses a rich collection of lead soldiers (some 115,000), which reenact the great battles of history. The gardens are magnificent and the Hafa café, a perfect place for refreshments, is only 100 metres away, atop a cliff.
