Asilah is a charming fishing port around 40km from Tangier. The old town is surrounded by Portuguese ramparts covering seven hectares. The historic ramparts contrast beautifully with the houses’ white walls. Raissouni Palace is an absolute must-visit but the best way to explore Asilah is to stroll along the sea and gaze at its impressive bastions and towers.
The northern Morocco city is heavily influenced by Andalusia and Tétouan is seen as the cultural hub of the Tangier region. Tétouan’s amazing architecture gives you a total change of scene. It’s managed to stay true to its traditional setting and authentic atmosphere. You can visit Medina, the Royal Palace and unearth treasures in the souks. Majestic mountains soar behind Tétouan.
