The route starts in Tangier, a city in the north of Morocco that is usually the entrance in this country. This is where you begin to feel the mystique of Africa. The old medina is very interesting and the views on the sea very attractive. On the road to Tetouan, just 14 km south of Tangier, there is a surprise. The Grotto of Hercules provides a very nice view of the Atlantic Ocean through an opening, whose shape reminds the inverted map of Africa. There was a human presence in this cave about 7000 years before J.C .. According to legend, Hercules remained here after having separated Europe from Africa.
The Hispano-Moorish city of Tetouan is a mixture of cultures. The medina is part of the Unesco world heritage site. It is a beautiful and authentic place, with markets in the streets, leather tanned and a lot of life. In the mellah (Jewish neighborhood), also called small Jerusalem, the guilds are very well defined. Tetuan is known for its importance for crafts. You have to visit the Museum of Moroccan Arts to get to know them better. Another important cultural building is the Archaeological Museum.
There are many unforgettable places in Morocco, but when you enter the interior of the Chefchaouen medina you will immediately fall in love with its blue colors and relaxed atmosphere. The view of the Rif mountains, the castle and the washerwoman’s zone also contribute to form a very strong memory of this unique place.
Transfer to the port or airport of Tangier.
