Excursion to Tangier 1 Day
Tangier, the city where Europe meets Morocco, where Mediterranean waters meet the Atlantic Ocean waters and where the sun meets the sea. Tangier, where multiple cultures and civilisations have been cohabiting. Since the prehistory many first vestiges of their existence remain until nowadays: Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs, Berbers, Portuguese, British, Spanish, etc. All this makes Tangier a very unique international place, with special features distinguishing it from the other Moroccan towns.
The white Medina, streched until the sea, is a sequence of narrow alleys, small squares, like the mythic Plaza of Zocco Chico, where you may have a break to enjoy a cup of tea in its restaurants; colourful traditional shops coloured in typical handicrafts, like the Haiti, embroidered tissues exposed on houses walls, leather articles, ceramics, ancient silver, jelabas, lampshades, traditional musical instruments... All this combined to the joyful character of Tangier's people.
If the Medina is the heart of Tangier, the Kasbah is its spirit. In its squares we may find the most emblematic buildings, like the Mosque of Kasbah, with its octagonal minaret, covered by the traditional zellige, Bab Al Assa, where we find a precious fountain decorated by mosaics and ornamented wood, in front of Bab El Bhar, or the door of the sea, from where we may enjoy the strait Panorama, Bit El Mel, the ancient treasury, and Dar Al Makhzen or Sultan Palace, nowadays Arts and Antiquities Museum.
Many artists succumbed to the charme of this town, and took it as their first home, including painters, musicians, authors, filmmakers, like Delacroix, Saint Saën, Matisse, Majorelle, Paul Bowels, Paul Morad, William Burroughs, Truman Capote, etc. Another manifestation of this attraction, in the cultural scope, the numerous festivals during throughout the year, like the National Cinema Festival, Tarab Festival, Mediterranean Nights, Tanjazz.
