Tangier, the white city, is a city of exchange, cosmopolitan, mythical and rich in history. Located in the north of Morocco, it is ideally located in one of the most beautiful bays of the Mediterranean situated on the Straits of Gibraltar, less than 15 km from the Spanish coast.
It has a unique and strategic geographical location: at the crossroads between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean, between the West and the East, it is a real gateway between Europe and Africa.
This exceptional and strategic location has made Tangier a coveted place for many civilizations. In fact, the different cultures have left a unique mark on the architecture of the city. Tangier has all the assets to regain its former status.
The port reconstruction project is a unique opportunity to rebuild the city – port relationship. Tanja Marina Bay, the first urban marina of the Kingdom, is naturally based on the exceptional geographical location and cultural wealth of the pearl of the Strait.
Tangier is also a gate that opens onto the cities of Asilah, Tetouan, Chaouen, Larache as well as all the hinterland; a region that harbours many riches.
A jewel of the north coast of Morocco, Asilah is a calm and beautiful destination on the Atlantic coast. Asilah enjoys a relaxing atmosphere and has beautiful, deserted and relaxing beaches. It is easily known thanks to its Mediterranean-style buildings: whitewashed houses with blue tones on the walls and doors.
Tetouan: Previously called “the daughter of Granada”, founded by those who fled the kingdom of Granada. The city shows the influence of al-Andalus and the Mediterranean, through its medina and the Ensanche. Tangier shares with Tetouan its Mediterranean character, being a place for meeting and for the spirit of freedom, reflected in its urban heritage. The city of Tetouan is famous for its most modern wealth: the Spanish architecture and urbanism of the 20th century. The medina of Tetouan is inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List.
The destination is particularly known for its low, blue and white houses. It is the ideal destination to escape the crowds and breathe the tranquility. Chefchaouen is a great city for shopping of handicrafts. At about 660m above sea level, and with very little car traffic, you can breathe a clean, fresh air that invites you to spend a few days to discover the beauty of this place and its environment.
