The Medina of Tetouan is a world heritage site because of its architecture and its importance as a point of contact between the Spanish and Arabic civilizations. 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.

I walked through the center on a market day. Needless to say the atmosphere is typically Moroccan; everyone bargaining for their food and clothes. Not that many tourists visit here so you can get yourself a djalaba or some cashew nuts at reasonable prices; and service with a smile. You can find some magnificent original Spanish doors around the center... More

I have writing reviews for TripAdvisor for quite sometime now, however I seem to have missed recommending this little gem tucked away in the north of Morocco. This is not your resort city a la Ibiza, but it offers you the three big S's sea, sand and s-ky, oh yes that's available too, all at moderate prices. You won't find... More
