Tangier holidays

Tangier lies on the North African coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel. Tangier has had a tumultuous past. In the 7th century BC it was colonised by the Phoenicians, a people originally from actual Lebanon who then had businesses and colonies all over the Mediterranean Sea. Then came the Carthaginians, originally from the important ancient Phoenician colony of Carthago. Close by, various excursions can be made including visits to Cape Spartel, the extreme north-westerly point of Africa, the famous Caves of Hercules and Cape Malabata. Tangier is also renowned for the Mendoubia gardens, with their eight-hundred-year-old trees, the Sidi Bouabid Mosque, the Medina and the Kasbah Square with its portico of white marble columns.
