A journey through the Arabian nights
Explore Tangier, the gateway to the African continent. This large city in northern Morocco located in the Strait of Gibraltar is full of charm and magic. It is curious: to visit the so called “white city” is to travel in time, immersing in history and culture - however, not putting modernity aside. It is a city of chronicles and legends, increasingly marked by the avant-garde.
Despite the European influence, the Medina of Tangier is still full of mystery and beauty. The Grand Socco, the ancient rural market and the nerve center of the city, houses the Mosque of Sidi Bou Abid and the majestic Palace of Mendoub. In the square of Petit Socco you can enjoy drinking tea and get enraptured in the colors and smells of this unique place before entering the street of the Mouahidines and reaching the great Mosque.
You can visit Tangier on your own feet and your own way. If you prefer, there are organized tours that offer different routes. For example, in so-called “shopping tours” you visit with a guide the Kasbah, Socco, the modern town and go shopping at Bazaar. In the “cultural tour” you will visit further cultural spots like the Necropolis and the Medina. And those who love exclusivity and want to get to know the city in a relaxed way, there is a special route visiting Tangier in private vehicle, enjoying a hammam session and drinking tea in a typical coffee.
If you are staying at Hotel THe El Cortijo de Zahara Senses Collection , this is a unique opportunity. Ferries go daily and regularly from Tarifa to Tangier - in just an hour you can be admiring the beauty of this place protected by the famous walls of Tangier. What are you waiting for?
