The most interesting cities in northern Morocco
Tangier is the closest and most comfortable city to visit. Lively, with an old town, colonial memory, many shops and lots to see.
The advantages are that we can get there directly by boat and that it has good communications. The drawbacks are its large population, more than one million inhabitants, the traffic difficulties and the fact that it has lost part of its Moroccan past to modernisation.
Tetouan is 40 km from the port of Ceuta, 50 km from the port of Tanger Med and 75 km from Tangier. A city that has kept its Andalusian and Spanish past very much alive, with a splendid UNESCO World Heritage Medina and the Spanish quarter, one of the most outstanding colonial quarters in Morocco. Added to this is its Mediterranean coast, the jewel in the crown of Moroccan tourism.
In the surrounding area, the coastline, “Tamuda Bay”, with its splendid tourist facilities and marina, and the towns of Rincon Mdiq, with a wide range of holiday facilities, are worth mentioning. Castillejos Fnideq is the shopping capital.
Chauen is located 60 km from Tetouan and 135 km from Tangier. The jewel of tourism in the north of Morocco, unique in the world, an Andalusian, Arab and Berber mountain city, very well cared for and prepared for tourism. In its surroundings, the routes through the Rif, the natural parks and its coastline where the towns of Oued Laou and Jebha stand out
Arcila or Asilah, 50 km from Tangier and 130 km from Tetouan. With its beautiful and well-kept medina by the sea decorated by contemporary artists that is well worth a visit. It is worth enjoying the beaches and the gastronomy, where fish and seafood stand out.
