Category: Monument and Historic Building

The Tangier Casbah is a square which faces the former palace of the Sultan which has now been converted into a museum. The Casbah was one of the old attractions of Tangier but has become isolated and lost its previous charm. It is built on the highest point of the city and is encircled by the walls of the Medina. The gate of the Casbah leads to the Dar el. Makhzem, built in the 17th century, which was the palace of the former Sultan. Inside the palace is a marble courtyard and beautifully carved wooden ceilings. There is a museum which displays Moroccan art and archaeology. The Casbah offers wonderful views of Spain and the Straits of Gibraltar. The walk to the Casbah is steep but the views are amazing and worth visiting. There are several winding alleys, arcades and hidden terraces in the residential quarter of the Casbah.

about our day trip in Tangier-Morocco

The Casbah and the Sultans palace is truly extraordinary and a must see in Tangier. Majdoline from Morocco-Holidays arranged our private tour and provided us with an excellent tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable and welcomed questions! The architecture is amassing as is the history. We had a very nice lunch stop at this location and the tour had a reasonable pace. Good tour for those interested in history, architecture and seeing new, interesting places. Having this guided tour made our visit to the Casbah and Mendoubia Gardens much more meaningful. We would have found it difficult to navigate this enormous complex on our own. The guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He is not only a great ambassador for the Tangier, but for Morocco in general. Majdoline shows care for her clients comments and concerns, she has a positive attitude towards her work and has the rare combination of excellent arrangements skills and compassion for the person she is representing. She deserves the highest recommendation possible. Be sure to book a private tour ahead of time, though! Email: majdoline@morocco-holidays.info
