In a nutshell A tour of Tangiers, a city with an ancient history characterized by a skyline that is punctuated by Christian spires and Muslim minarets.
Good to know
- Cape Spartel
- Grand Socco
- As we cross the Strait of Gibraltar, one of the most
important waterways in the world, we can see the port of Tangiers on the
northern coast of Africa. The coloured walls of the old city are the first
element to emerge against a backdrop of low hills. As we get close enough to
make out the houses of the medina and the new city beyond the port we
recognise 'The White City'.
Our excursion starts with a panoramic tour along the city beach and through the main streets of the new city.
- Then we reach Cape
Spartel, a promontory located at the northernmost point of the African
- When we return to the heart of the city we visit the Kasbah,
with it squares, the wide circular area of the Grand Socco and the fruit
and vegetable market.
- Our excursion continues with a visit to the
medina, where we wander through the narrow alleyways lined with arts and
crafts shops to re-emerge at the entrance of port of the city from where we
return to the ship.
