Top 10 Attractions in Tangier
Take a camel ride down to Tangier Beach. Cool off with a windsurf through the waves or a beachfront beverage before lingering over a showcase of everyday Moroccan life at the Contemporary Art Museum. Wander through the intriguingly derelict Spanish Theatre at Gran Teatro Cervantes.
So here are our top 10 reasons for making Morocco your next holiday destination.
The Mendoubia Gardens
Escape the blistering midday sun underneath the leaves of an 800-year-old banyan tree.
Said to have been the site for both a Roman temple and Portuguese church. In any case, the fascinating and largely debatable history will not detract form the stunning view.
Terrasse des Paresseux
Take in sweeping views over the port and pretend you’re warding off usurpers with the ancient cannons.
Church of the Immaculate Conception
This church was built in the 1800s when one-fifth of Tangier’s population was Spanish. The influence is clear.
St Andrews Church.
An eclectic mix of English country church and traditional Moroccan décor, this is one of Tangier’s oldest churches.
Tangier’s main market square. Absorb the atmosphere and stroll through the bizarre bazaar.
A chic residential area in the 1920s, this luxurious estate is still well worth an exploration.
Le Petit Socco
Once the sleazy underbelly of Tangier filled with drugs and prostitution, now a quaint café-filled square that is one of the most picturesque in the Old Quarte
Tangier American Legation Museum.
A mix of United States national history and dreamy Moroccan art. The highlight is the American flag in the form of a Berber rug.
Grand Hôtel Villa de France
The once-thriving and now-crumbling hotel has been called ‘a painter’s paradise’.
