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.
