medina in Tetouan is not as big as ones in other bigger cities in Morocco but it has its own character and charms. When you get to outdoor marketplace, you really feel the energies of the people making a living in their environment.

Much about the medina of Tetouan reflects the character of other medinas in Morocco but this is very genuine, it is used by locals, it is down at heel, there is a real sense that it is a working place for the local community though...More

We've traveled Morocco for 3 months and this was the last place on our stop. It's as authentic as Medina's come and if you are on a hectic multi-city itinerary then this city would break it up nicely along with Chefchaouen. The Medina is split...More

The medina of Tetouan is like all the other medinas of Morocco. It enjoys a particular authenticity since it is adjacent

I was pleasantly surprised when we visited Tetoun. It was only a stop on our trip from Tangier to Chefcaoun. Too bad as we could have stayed much longer. The median was clean and very white.

It's an old medina and the place were full of local products, shops, market and a lots of variety food here. You can also get some Spanish products in the market as well. I was here just for a short visit.

Was here for couple of hours before heading to Chefchaouen. I was able to walk around the city especially in the old medina. Just another northern side of Morocco, seems a bit like Tangier as my point of view.

Tetouan would be an option but I recommend you to take a taxi to safe time. I recommend highly the medina. Just go with the flow, it's a wonderful experience if you're open to the real Moroccan life.
