Morocco was the first country to recognize the United States as an independent country, and in 1821 Sultan Moulay Souliman donated the building of the American Legation Museum to the US government. Since then, the building has been home to a large collection of paintings, books, maps, and portraits.
The highest point in the Old Medina, the Kasbah has always been shared by Moroccans and foreign residents alike, particularly in the 1920s when Tangier was an international zone.
Also known as Dar el Makhzen (or the Sultanate Palace), the Kasbah Palace was constructed by Moulay Ismail in the 17th century. Today it’s an art museum which features mosaic floors, traditional carpets, Fez furniture, jewelry, ceramics, leather, and illuminated manuscripts.
Tennessee Williams based his play Camino Real on this square in Tangier.
This Anglican church still stands as a vestige of Tangier’s international days. A cemetery surrounds the church and holds graves of British and commonwealth soldiers who died fighting in North Africa during World War II.
Cape Spartel is a Moroccan promontory which sits at the entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar, 14 miles west of Tangier. Below the cape sits the Caves of Hercules, popular with tourists for its openings to both land and sea. The latter is shaped like the continent of Africa.
