Visited this area as part of a group tour. It was interesting. Don't recommend you go on your own. Didn't mind the different sites, but it was hard getting past the smell. Being American not used to seeing food slaughtered and prepped for you as you waited. So many cats all over the area. Watch where you walk! There were... More

This is a terrible place in a beautiful region. Avoid the city of Tetouan! The traffic is a mess, the medina terrible and nothing to see. Spend more time in the beautiful surounding areas instead like Chefchaouen and the Rif Mountains. We love the Northern Morocco but Tetuoan was a nightmare and should be avoided at all cist :-)

If you have time, get lost in its fantastic alleys. Otherwise, hire a guide and take a tour through this maze. Outside the medina there are also interesting buildings like the mesmerizing Royal...

I love this city, and every summer we come here for a couple of weeks. It's beautiful, especially during the ramadan. Hundreds of people are walking through a maze of narrow streets. Many colours are seen there and everywhere you look there are people selling stuff like fruit, fish, moroccan delicacies and drinks. It's a must-see and I would recommend... More

Visited this medina in July 2012 on a day trip from Spain. The medina was very interesting as well as it was to people watch. There were no other landmarks. This was the major attraction of Tetouan. Would highly recommend to get a taste of Morocco.

Have a local person guide you through the narrow streets filled with locals selling fresh vegetables, fruit, fish, meat and used stuff.
