The Tétouan medina is one of the finest in Morocco, as proven by its inclusion on the UNESCO world heritage list in 1997. Known for its white houses contrasting with the distant black mountains of the Rif, you will be instantly impressed by its charm.
For a long time the home of Spaniards, the medina is a melting pot of local, Ottoman and also Andalusian influences, hence its very special architectural style.
Do not hesitate to stroll through its busy streets. You will go from surprise to surprise. This old town is a real cultural hotbed with twenty mosques in the old town, a royal palace, a potters’ and fabric merchants’ district.
