The Kasbah
Walled off from the city's Medina, not far from the Petit Socco, Tangiers' famous Kasbah is a historic fortress that houses many luxury villas from the 20s. It was long considered one of the most chic places to live in around the Mediterranean.
Tomb of Ibn Battouta
This tomb venerates the 14th century famous Arab traveler who surpassed Marco Polo in the extent of exploration and travel. Ibn Battouta's journeys lasted 28 years, spreading over 44 countries across Asia, Africa and Europe.
Gran Teatro Cervantes
On Saladin Street or Rue Salah Eddine el Ayoubi is an old, deserted building, which at the same time is an amazing site. It was once the old Spanish theatre in the town with a stunning Art Nouveau facade and a remarkable glass dome.
American Legation Museum
More like a three-floor palace than a museum, this is also a vibrant cultural center, considered the only historic landmark of the United States that's found abroad. A wealthy collection of art and other items are on display, including letters between Sultan Moulay Ben Abdellah and George Washington. There's also a section dedicated to American writer and composer Paul Bowles who lived in Tangier.
Dar El Makhzen Palace
Once a glorious palace belonging to the Moroccan Sultan Moulay Hafid, who was exiled by the French in 1912, today, Dar Al Makhzen is a museum for antiquities and crafts. This is considered one of the main attractions in Kasbah, where you can revel in exceptional ceramic collections from Fes and Meknes. Painted wood ceilings with an arabesque character are also stunning. The building itself and the gardens are also very interesting.
Grand Socco, Medina and Mendoubia Gardens
Here are three great areas to discover together: The Grand Socco with its lively cafes is the main market square in the city (although its markets have been transferred to Rue d'Angleterre in the 1970's), and is the ideal place to enter the Medina which takes you to the Petit Socco. Before you continue, visit the adjacent Mendoubia gardens, amazingly green with centuries-old trees. You will be delighted in the Medina's old streets and sights. Near El Minzah Hotel and towards Place de France, you must stop by the Foundouk Market as well.
Tangier's Beach
Enjoy a long idyllic coast dotted with restaurants and pubs. Enjoy a leisurely dinner with a glass of wine. Water sports abound, including stations for windsurfing, in addition to other activities.
Place de France
This central square in what's considered the newer part of town or Ville Nouvelle is famed for its many cafés. It has a decidedly French ambiance and many historical connections, as it used to be a hangout of many wheelers, dealers and warmongers of all sides during the Second World War.
Caves of Hercules
Only 14 kilometers away, the Caves of Hercules dazzle you with their strangeness. These multiple caves were supposedly established by Hercules and have been used as homes since Neolithic times. Many archeological artifacts have been found there.
Contemporary Art Museum
Marvel at the exhibits of work of well-known Moroccan artists not far from the Grand Socco. The 'Musée d'Art Contemporain' features the works of Moroccan artists on daily life in Morocco.
