Why visit Tangier?
Tangier is a unique blend of Africa and Europe and a fascinating crucible of cultures, which attracts travellers curious to discover the face of North Africa. With an ancient Portuguese-walled medina, bustling souks and architecture that spans aeons, Tangier is a feast for the senses. Made famous by its big-name literary residents and counting Mic Jagger among its fans, the city’s historic independence from the rest of Morocco has made it synonymous with a free-thinking and artistic way of life. With a white-washed old town, glorious beaches and a brand-new harbour, Tangier is just as alluring now as it ever has been.
Famous Tangier sites include the palace of the Sultans of Morocco, Dar el Makhzen, now a museum of national artefacts, and the Kasbah Museum of Mediterranean Cultures. Take a crash course in Tangier’s history at the Fondation Lorin, housed in an old synagogue, or take a trip up to the lighthouse and castle at Cape Malabata.

Don't Forget Before you Fly
Those travelling with a British passport don’t need a visa to enter Morocco for tourism purposes and are eligible to stay for up to three months. Ensure that your passport is stamped upon entry, that there is no damage to the passport and that it’s valid for the duration of your stay. You can exchange money into the local Moroccan dirham in the arrivals hall of Terminal 2, but it’s a good idea to have enough for your onward journey with you upon arrival.
