Insubordinate and mythical, once the home of Matisse and Truman Capote, the Stones, Kerouac and Yves Saint Laurent, Tangier is a mixed-race city, inspired and shaped by both the Middle East and Africa, Latin America and Andalusia. It must be said that its position in the Strait of Gibraltar has made it, since the Phoenicians' time, a strategic entry point and passage between Africa and Europe, and its medina on the hillside, full of charming and whitewashed buildings, continues to face the bay, preserving within its walls the ancient and multiple influences of distant peoples. The inhabitants of the city are welcoming, and the traveller will easily find his way through the narrow streets of the medina, the café terraces, the souks with a thousand and one spicy colours and smells... The Tangier tourist guide will also lead us to the Dar el-Makhzen palace, transformed into a museum of ancient Moroccan objects, but also to its casbah, high perched, which dominates the rest of the city from dawn to sunset, like a window opening onto the world. Tangier is a destination of dreams, of artificial but very real paradises. Push the doors, be curious and smile, the journey begins!
