Day 18 // Tangier (طَنجة)

Dar Bargach, like the night before.


The Tangier Kasbah is home to lots of history. Did you know that Sultan Moulay Hafid was sent to exile here? Walk around this landmark, visit the museum (which costs 10 dh), and see the Sultan's Gardens.

You must go to the beach while you're here! You probably won't want to faire la natation in it (rumor has it isn't the cleanest beach), but take a walk along the shore, enjoy the salty air, and make sure to catch a glimpse of Spain! I've been able to see other countries from across a body of water (USA/Canada and Israel/Jordan), but another continent? I think this is so cool.

You'll probably want to spend the bulk of your time at the medina, perusing the souks for any last-minute gifts or souvenirs. Inhale the scents of the wonderful food being cooked around you; take in the beauty of the tall minarets that grace the skyline; and absorb the hustle and bustle of the medina. It's your last day full in Morocco, so make it count.
