After Chefchaouen, the blue pearl, we explored Tangier, another colorful city even if it doesn’t look like it at first.
To be honest, I didn’t had a real crush for Tangier, mostly because we only stayed there for 2 days and it was raining most of the time. But some places just don’t give you this good vibe as much as others, and you can’t explain it!
But Tangier has some nice hidden gems in its medina and kasbah. Especially colorful streets, almost like in Chefchaouen, but with many colors. The great thing about Tangier is that it’s very authentic, with noisy and crowded markets, for a true experience of the local life.
Instead of writing about what we did day by day, here is a list of what I like : about Tangier:
The kasbah, where we had our airbnb, it’s the artists and hippies area, where Jack Kerouac, Paul Bowles, Jim Morrison and even the Rolling Stones stayed. Also a paradise for incredible doors lovers!
The Medina, popular neighborhood, where you can see the colorful streets and small markets.
The American Legacy Museum and its lovely garden.
The café restaurant Le Salon Bleu, where we ate twice.
The Kasbah museum, incredible sultan palace, rebuilt as a museum about Mediterranean cultures.
The concept store Las Chicas, where local moroccan artcrafts get a modern twist.
And of course, food! Moroccan food is among the most delicious for me, we had great experiences with restaurants almost everywhere, but for half the price of Tangier in Chefchaouen.
