Tangier – gateway to Africa
An Introduction To Tangier
Strategically Tangier has always been important due to its location at the entrance to the Mediterranean. It has always attracted eccentricity and over the years became known as a city of refuge with a sleazy reputation.
However all that has changed, the city has cleaned up its act on an enormous scale and is clean, cultured and well cared for. However, there is still a big rich / poor divide evident here. Petit Socco Square and its cafes are charming and in the Mendoubia Park you can see a giant Banyan and Dragon tree alleged to be 800 years old.
