Tangier is a city in northern Morocco situated on the North African coast.
Tangier’s rich history dates back to the 5th century BC and many civilizations have left their mark.
Tangier strengthened its position in the 1920’s when it was given international status by foreign colonial powers, making it a popular destination for many Europeans and Americans.
