Let us take you to the heart of Arabian culture in order to discover the impressive legacy left by this amazing civilisation. We visit the mythical cities of Tangier and Tetuan and the isolated Spanish territory of Ceuta.
Morocco is an Islamic country so full of mysticism that it looks like it moves on a flying carpet between myth and reality. Tangier, Tetuan, Agadir… just the mention of the names of these cities is sufficient to conjure up a recollection of the rich aroma of spices, the sights, sounds, tastes; a sensory banquet even for the most experienced travellers.
Morocco is characterised by the warmth of its people, colours of the landscapes, old and exotic cities, dazzling beauty of the desert and the long beautiful beaches. For centuries this land has attracted poets, artists, writers and adventurers searching for the exotic. For many people it’s their first contact with Africa and the Islamic culture. The experience can be astonishing because of the country’s contrasts, changing landscapes, character and ambiance. Morocco never fails to stimulate one’s senses and form a lasting impression.
When speaking about Morocco we think of cities full of history like Tangier. However, it’s important not to forget the Rif mountain region with its savage landscapes, white cities, villages of adobe in terrace form on top of the mountains, agriculture, beautiful forests, varied landscapes and mountain roads that offer spectacular views. Also noteworthy is the Mediterranean Sea with its beaches of gilded sand and beaches in between the cliffs in a natural and secluded setting.
Few cities have the allure of Tangier - it has since time immemorial possessed a certain attraction. Painters (Matisse, Delacroix, Francis Bacon), writers (Tennessee Williams, Samuel Beckett, Truman Capote, Paul Bowles), multimillionaires (Barbara Hutton, Malcolm Forbes) and musicians like Igor Stravinsky all fell in love with this city and contributed towards its global fame. Tangier continues to enchant travellers from all over the world who are drawn to this legendary city.
Tetuan, called ‘The white city’, is situated in the foothills of the Rif Mountains (on the Mediterranean Sea) and 57 km from Tangier. Its medina is very charming and the new town is full of attractive places.
The most beautiful city in the Rif is Chaouen (or Chefchaoen) which is 115 km from Tangier. Its name in Berber means ‘the horns’ referring to the two mountains on either side of the city (Djebel Efchaouen).
