Medina of Tangier, Tangier

Sit in the central square of Medina of Tangier and soak up the scenes of daily life around this historic part of town. The blend of architectural styles in the walled quarter complements the mix of people who have ventured here throughout the medina's history of travel, trade, conquest, and cultural exchange. Some particularly notable sights--a Spanish church, a mosque, and the old U.S. consulate building--have historical intrigue in abundance. Still, the real attraction remains the everyday life going on all around, with locals sipping tea and playing backgammon against a backdrop of medieval alleyways and winding staircases.
