Discovering the history and the charme of Tetouan city


60 km away from tangier, Tetouan is the most Andalusian city of northern Morocco. Its Moorish and Arabian styles reflect a rich history.
The old Medina of Tetouan was listed as a UNESCO world Heritage in 1997. Tetouan is marked by the historical roots of the Medina , a city whose seven gates have marked its life. A city of museums and historic districts , Tetouan is a city of traditions and culture. The former places became restaurants or guest houses , offering a refined gastronomy.

Itinerary

The white piegeon city reflects the spanish influence that dates from 1912 till 1956, when Tetouan was the capital of the Spanish protectorate, which encompassed much of northern Morocco. The town's long relationship with Andalusia has left it with a Hispano-Moorish character that is unique in Morocco, as physically reflected in the white buildings and broad boulevards of the Spanish part of the city. In our tour we will visit :
- plaza primo de la rivera that is known as place Moulay Mehdi;
- visiting the Church of "Nuestra Señora de la Victoria" in Tetouan city one of the historic Spanish remainings of the city;
- then we will be walking arround the old medina to see the main square of "fedan" ;
- crossing by the king's castle;
- visiting the some gates of the old Medina and passing by the stores of jewleries , and the souq ( market ) of vegetables;

A Recent Review of this tour

Amina was an excellent guide with very good English. Our cruise changed the itinerary to avoid bad weather and was arriving a day earlier into Tangier. Despite only 48 hours notice, Amina accommodated us for a trip to Tetouan with Fatima driving. They were very flexible to our needs (my wife has heart problems) for easy paced walking. They shepherded us through the Souks and the old town and gave us a comprehensive overview of Tetouan. The car was very comfortable for the journey and Fatima drove well
