  • Overview & Itinerary

    Overview

    Explore the charming ‘white’ city of Tetouan, affectionately called ‘the daughter of Granada’ by the locals, on this private excursion from Tangier. Dominated by Hispanic-influenced architecture, the city was built by Muslim refugees from Spain in the 15th century.

    Rising from the Mediterranean Sea between majestic mountains on either side, Tetouan is also a famous craftsmanship centre that seduces visitors by its meanderings, valleys, serenity and its special ambience.

    Shop at the Souk Hout and the Guersa El Kebira square with its many fabric shops. Lively bargaining is the order of the day!

    A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Medina is one of the most fascinating and absorbing in the whole of Morocco, with its shaded alleyways and mosques.
