Through this cave i can see the map of Africa, it's an amazing cave worth a visit and wonder for how great Hercule's were during his time, this is a historical place shows the power of people were in the past and how they use this caves as their homes.

the Caves are carved naturally by the ocean, with heavy weather, the seas rushing into the cave, but do not get wet, as we step back .By great weather, it makes you want to swim but for me, the best is the sunset is magnificent .Seul small flat, souvenir sellers who occupy the sites, email they do "not stick.

It was so beautiful to look out into the ocean through the opening in the cave. I was in awe of God's beautiful creation. I was at peace taking in the view. It was also a good balance because it was a fun adventure climbing around in the cave!

When I looked out at the ocean through the cave opening, I was in awe of God's beautiful creation. I was at peace standing there just watching it. It was so soothing and yet at the same time it was adventurous climbing around in the cave.

If you visit Tangier, this is the right place you can´t miss. It´ s not difficult to find the place, and if you love beach, beautiful views and a bit of history and fine atmosphere, you should be here.

According to our tour guide, legendary Hercules had a resting place in Tangier, in a cave. (it is closed for restoration), The place also retains fingerprints and other traces of his passage. Myth or reality, the question is not there. The visit to the cave of Hercules is worth seeing. Remember the first impression rather scary, and enter the cave... More

Currently the Hercules Cave is closed. We were looking forward to seeing it. Looks like it is undergoing renovations and will be reopened in a one and half year.

This is something nice to see if you are in Tangier and close to the cave. And on the way to the cave you can also ride some camels. That's cool :)
