Even today, the powerful charm of Tangier operates ... From the formerly sulphurous alleys of Petit Socco to more avant-garde terraces than ever before.
TANG THE WHITE:
The Medina of Tangier has always fascinated and inspired artists. Eugène Delacroix, Henri Matisse, Paul Bowles, Tennessee Williams, Jean Genet ... the list is still long. All succumbed to the charm of the Place du Petit Socco and its cafes, including the famous Tingis.
This despite its reputation sulphurous because of the casinos and dancings that abounded there at the time. North of the Medina, the former Mendoub Palace, built in 1929, is now a house designed to accommodate distinguished foreign guests. In the far south is the museum of the old American legation. This building houses paintings and a whole room is dedicated to the American writer Paul Bowles. It is by the Place du Grand Socco that you will leave the Medina, a very lively place in the evening, which begins the transition to the new city.
NEW CITY: North of the Place du Grand Socco, the Mendoubia Park offers a pleasant stroll. Giant banian fig tree and 800-year-old dragon tree punctuate the visit. By taking the Rue de la Liberté, a shopping street, you will come to Place de France. It is the heart of the modern city with the famous Grand Café de Paris and the hotel El Minzah frequented by the great names of arts and literature of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This place is always fashionable. While evolving on the place of Faro with its guns, you will discover the breathtaking view on the medina, the port and the bay of Tangier. At the top of the cliff, the mythical Hafa Cafe overlooks the Strait of Gibraltar.
