If the medina is the heart of every Moroccan city, the Kasbah is its soul. In Tangier, the fortress is located on a hill from which you can enjoy a spectacular view of the deep blue sea. The defensive site was also the residence of the Sultan, which is why the palace is located within these walls. The Kasbah Museum awaits you with an impressive variety - from information about the palace to the history of the region and the eclectic art of Morocco. The enchanting Andalusian garden behind the museum gives you a chance to catch your breath after all the sightseeing.
Along the northwesternmost coast of the country is a fascinating complex of caves around which numerous myths and legends have grown up. According to tradition, Hercules slept here on his way to steal the three golden apples from the Garden of Hesperides. This is just one of the many folk tales about the extraordinarily beautiful and archaeologically important cave complex. There are only two entrances to the Hercules Caves, the one facing the sea resembling the shape of the African continent. The land entrance was created by the local Berbers who broke the stones out of the rock. Do not miss a visit on your trip to Tangier!

Moroccans love carefully landscaped gardens that encourage meditation and contemplation. The garden of Mendoubia is no exception.

The park is the lungs of the otherwise very hectic city. Linger here a little and let your Tangier holiday, the soul something dangle!
Finding an Anglican church in Morocco may sound strange to you, but Hassan I gave the English this piece of land for it in 1880. Behind the altar on the archway, visitors can read a version of the Lord's Prayer in Arabic. The building is also very beautiful and the bell tower of the place of worship is shaped like a minaret. A walk through the cemetery is highly recommended, as you will learn surprising stories about the city's former international residents. Less
