Explore a town of outstanding universal value with clear Andalusian influence


Tetouanis claim that they are the true heirs of the Andalusian civilization and affectionately call their city "the daughter of Granada. "

Architecturally, the Hispanic influence is dominant throughout the city, for Tetouan was first built by Muslim refugees from Spain in the 15th century and then it was enlarged by the Spanish government in the early years of the 20th century.

Its Medina is one of the most fascinating and absorbing in the country, a delightful warren of detail.

Itinerary

Departure from Tangier
Tangier-Tetouan drive around 1h
We can see a beautiful landscape on the road: Jbala Mountains, Berber villages, locals small markets situated in the road.
We can have a coffee break in the middle of the road.

Tetouan is known as "The White Pigeon".
A largely white painted medium-sized city with dominantly Andalusian Flavor.

Moroccan, Islamic, Phoenician, European and Spanish (Andalusian) architecture are harmoniously merged together. The Big Mosque, Spanish Cathedral, Babu Saidi, The Kasbah The Medina and Hassan II Square are proof examples that make of Tetouan a historical melting pot of cultures.

Here are some attractions:

-The old Royal Palace, a 17th century building, at Place Hassan II (Hassan II Square) is itself a reflection of the Hispano-Moresque architecture.
