Tangier, a city of Art and Light, a genuine gift of nature, looks uncannily like a jewel carefully incrusted with emerald-coloured mountains and a fantastic maritime sapphire-shaded landscape enhanced with waves gently caressing a beach of diamond-hued sand.
It is one of the rare parts of the word where the Mediterranean Sea and Atlantic Ocean majestically come together.
In this natural setting, the air has the fragrance of paradise.
A UNIVERSAL CITY WITH A THOUSAND FACES
Less than fifteen kilometers from the Spanish coasts which you could almost touch with your fingers on very clear days, situated on the Gibraltar straight where Atlantic and Mediterranean waters mix, Tangier still palpitates with one thousand mysteries that create its myth.
Door to Africa, high place of mythology, passage between Orient and Occident, summer capital of cherifian sultans, summer and congress town, duty free industrial zone, off-shore financial place, international and embassies town, corsair and rebellious city… The multiple faces of Tangier have made poets and smugglers, conquerors and beatniks, eccentric millionaires and beautiful people dream for centuries.
A MOSAIC OF CIVILIZATIONS WHERE ALL KIND OF RICHES ARE EXCHANGED
Laying on the Rif mountains, open to the straight and swept by the Chergui, Eastern purifying wind, the city has always been hosting and universal. It has been Berber, Roman, and Byzantine, conquered by Vandals and then by Arabs, Moroccan, Portuguese, Spaniard, Portuguese again, English, Moroccan once more before it became international from 1923 until its Independence in 1960. Tangier is a mosaic of civilizations, ethnic groups and religions, where all kind of riches and values are exchanged.
Remaining the same, without losing its soul, it has acquired a rare spirit of openness to the thoughts and trends coming from all over the world, as well as strength without complexes regarding History and Geography.
