Tangier is the meeting point between the Old continent and Africa, located on the northern point of Marocco, only 16 km away from the shores of Spain, it’s exposed on the Mediterranean Sea with a stunning view of the Strait of Gibraltar on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other.

Its port is the biggest of the country and is in rapid growth.

Tangier is one of the most ancient cities of North Africa, with a history of more than 2500 years ruled, during centuries, by Byzantine, Arab, Roman and Phoenician conquerors.

You can admire many things of this city, it’s like going back in time yet staying in modern time: from the streets of  Medina to Kasbah, where the Sultan’s Palace is located, (today a museum), Caffè Hafa fascinating for its cliff-side position, the view is breath-taking.

Tangier has always been loved by artists from around the world, among these Paul Bowles and William Burroughs, who would hang out at the Hafa Cafè; things have changed but the atmosphere it’s still the same, Tangier is for sure the place that resembles the fascinating location evoked in the movie “Casablanca”.
