Tangier is a city of Africa closest to Europe. Since its creation, this city was destined, due to its geographical and strategic location, for an intense history. It is present in its culture, its architecture and way of being. Conquered, besieged, liberated... Tangier has absorbed all the influences, all the cultures that have passed through its soil and has managed to assimilate their cultural wealth.
During the first half of last century, Tangier was administered by an "international authority" led by a dozen European diplomats. The city had its own administration and laws outside the central government of Morocco. In 1956, the city became once and for all part of the Kingdom of Morocco, but the relentless passage of different civilizations left a particular mark on this amazing city, forged by all these influences and diversity. There are numerous monuments and museums to testify to this, from its medina - purely Hispanic – to the modern architecture and certain French customs that have survived. Not forgetting the permanence of wonderful Muslim architectural works such as the Kasbah or the palace garden.
Tangier is a city of an imminent interest that offers its visitors a great variety of places to visit and a succulent cuisine with exotic flavors of the Arab world.
