TAP Portugal  


As a port where different civilizations and influences have met throughout the centuries, Tangier’s recent history in anchored to the fascination that many artists have felt for the city where culture is served with an exotic perfume.

With the smell of mint tea wafting through the air, Tangier’s charm has fascinated, throughout the centuries, Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Portuguese, Spanish, English and French, not counting the tourists that each year arrive in the port that swings between Africa and Europe. Following the scent that charmed painters like Eugène Delacroix and Henri Matisse and writers such as Tennessee Williams and William S. Burroughs, you should book a table in Grand Café de Paris, in Café Central or in Hafa Café, places of great soirées – in a last case, with a great view of Gibraltar. But the track of the cultural exoticism should also be followed leading to the ruins of the Cervantes Theatre, the Contemporary Art Museum of Tangier, the Casbah Museum, once the sultan’s palace, or even the American Legation Museum, a cultural centre depicting the presence of the United States in Morocco, the first country to recognize the United States as an independent state, in 1777. Music lovers are also invited to the Tanjazz Festival that gathers the world’s prominent jazz musicians and Mediterranean Nights Festival, with an eclectic music programme.
