Tour of Tetouan Morocco.
Eric and I took the plunge and went with a hired guide from the border at Ceuta, rode for about 30 minutes in an antique unmetered taxi, and arrived in the old part of Tetouan. The tour showed us some of the architecture dating back up to 800 years, the city skyline, an overly eager Moroccan carpet salesman, a leather tannery, and an authentic Moroccan market.
Tetouan is historically considered one of the more tourist unfriendly cities in Morocco. This doesn’t mean that the people there are unfriendly towards tourists rather most tourist opt for the more obvious choices such as Tangier, Fes, and Casablanca.
The king was in residence during our stay there, so the police presence seemed to keep things in check. It’s definitely not a trip for the unadventurous, but you’ll have a good story to tell when you’re back home!
Please be careful with the guides at the border. They are NOT official. Agree on prices beforehand, as they will almost certainly increase by the end of your tour. Some amount of bartering is expected.
Just be assertive and don’t let anyone pressure you into buying anything you don’t want. Be prepared to say “La!” 100 times at any carpet shop you enter.
A lovely white Andalusian city set upon the Mediterranean Sea near Tangier, Tetouan Morocco traces its origins back to 3rd century B.C. Then it was a settlement called Tamouda which existed until 42A.D. when it was destroyed by Roman armies.
When the Merinid sultan Abu Thabit constructed a kasbah at Tetouan in 1307, the Muslim city began to find its form. However, as a refuge for Barbary pirates, Tetouan drew the wrath of the Castilian king Henry III whose forces overran the city and sacked it in 1399.
For a century thereafter Tetouan went into a period of decline until coming under the Andalucian influence of refugees from Granada. From 1484 the city took on some of the rich architectural and cultural character of Muslim Spain, traces of which can still be seen today.
In 1913 Tetouan Morocco became the capital of Spain’s protectorate until independence in 1956.
