Tangier, Morocco

Introduction to Tangier, Morocco

Overlooking a vast sweeping bay, Tangier is the traditional gateway to Morocco.

Though no more than 15 miles across the Straits of Gibraltar from Europe, this is a cosmopolitan city that stands on the threshold of Africa. Its world of soaring minarets and domes, ancient casbah (once the sultan's walled palace and gardens) and animated souks express the rich part-Arab, part-African heritage of a city that has seen occupation by 12 nations since the 5th century.
