Across the Strait of Gibraltar and just 20 miles from the British enclave of Gibraltar, lies the vastly different city of Tangier, both a strategic port to the Mediterranean and an exotic place that has long enticed travelers, artists, and celebrities from all over the world. And although there are still famous reminders of its nefarious past—such as the souqs, markets, and Petit Socco Square, all of which can be found among the medieval streets and alleyways of the medina—“the ville nouvelle” of Tangier has undergone a revival, and now showcases a new port, beautified beaches, great restaurants, and a wealth of attractions. Visit the Grand Socco, shop along the rue de la Liberté, and then head to the Place de France and the renowned El Minzah Hotel and Café de Paris for a cup of mint tea and mesmerizing people watching.
