Tangier is Morocco’s northernmost city. Located on a promontory, it is only 20 miles from Spain and offers frequent ferry service, including day trips to a few Spanish port cities.

It is a melting pot of cultures from north Africa, Spain and France, and as the ‘Door of Africa’, it has an interesting and exotic history.

It was once a hub for experimental writers such as Jack Kerouac and William Burroughs.

Although visitors usually pass through Tangier without exploring it, the city does offer an interesting Old Town, cafes with views of the Ocean, and Souks with handicrafts from the Rif Mountains.
