Magical Morocco

Today we are taking you for a short journey to one of our favourite countries - Morocco. During our two extensive trips to the northern region of Africa, we had a chance to visit many inspiring places: from vibrant Marrakesh to exotic Taroudant.

Tangier, located at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar, is a charming city with lots of small shops, cafés and restaurants. It is a perfect starting point for discovering the country.

"Always of huge strategic importance at the entrance to the Mediterranean, Tangier is the enthralling gateway to Africa, a tantalising introduction to a culture vastly different from that across the Strait of Gibraltar. (...)

Tangier is divided into an old walled city, or medina, a nest of medieval alleyways, and a new, modern city, the ville nouvelle. The medina contains a kasbah, the walled fortress of the sultan, which forms its western corner; the Petit Socco (also known as Socco Chico and Souq Dakhel), an historic plaza in the centre; and of course, the souqs, or markets. The much more impressive Grand Socco (officially renamed Pl du 9 Avril 1947), a pleasant square with a central fountain, is the hinge between the two sides of town, and the postcard entrance to the medina." - Lonely Planet


The flight from Madrid (Spain) to Tangier is only 1 hour 25 minutes!
