This elegant square is a perfect place to feel the city life of Tangier. Also a good meeting place near the Médina. Best views from the terrace opposite the Médina entrance.

The Grand Socco COULD BE a delightful experience. After all, you are in a rather exotic place surrounded by exotic things, and the winding streets and enormous variety of shops and goods is intriguing. HOWEVER, it is impossible to enjoy it due to all of...More

The center of the town is nice, but not much to do. You can see everything in less than 2 hours. Be careful of pickpockets.
