Many people go through Tangier on the way to the rest of the must- see destinations in Morocco. It’s merely a great bonus that Tangier itself has much to offer to the average tourist. Tangier is worth visiting for its varied history.
Tangier has been the summer site of the Moroccan royal residence since 1962. An important port and trade centre, the city has excellent road and rail connections with Fès, Meknès, Rabat, and Casablanca, as well as an international airport and regular shipping services to Europe.
Mirador dor Estrecho (Overlook of the Strait) This is a viewpoint of Gibraltar’s strait located 3.7 miles north-east of Tarifa Town (less than a ten minutes’ drive). From here, you can see the majestic 2763ft tall Jebel Musa mountain in Morocco .
Gibraltar is one such unique place on earth ! The Strait of Gibraltar is a narrow strait that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and separates Gibraltar and Peninsular Spain in Europe from Morocco and Ceuta ( Spain ) in Africa.
The Euro is a currency that is in high demand in Tangier . Many local merchants would be very happy to accept payments in Euros , but you ‘ll get a terrible conversion rate. It’s better and wiser to get a few dirhams.
