Manning the Strait of Gibraltar on the Maghreb coast, Tangier has been a prosperous trading port for centuries. Its potent combination of exotic beauty, one-time status as an ‘international zone’ and crossbreed history had lent it a mysterious air of adventure and romance for ages. With its Mediterranean connections dating as far back as the Phoenician era, over time, Tangier has inspired artists and writers around the world, right from Mark Twain, Delacroix and Tennessee Williams to Paul Bowles and Henri Matisse. Today, travelers continue to flock to its shores, drawn by its rich heritage and cosmopolitan air. The old hillside medina, the view over the strait, the sultan’s palace (now converted into a museum), and the American Legation Museum are just some of the delightful sights that the city offers.
