• Tétouan - Eglise JB 541 min tourism

Tetouan, a UNESCO-recognized city, blends Spanish and Moroccan influences with stunning white architecture, vibrant markets, and rich cultural heritage, making it an unforgettable destination for curious travelers seeking a unique experience.

Tetouan is a beautiful white city and a UNESCO world heritage site.  The city dates back to the fourteenth century and has always been closely connected to Spain – whether as part of a defense against the Spanish, or due to heavy immigration from Spain, particularly Jewish immigration as a result of the Spanish Inquisition, and today the Jewish mellah and synagogue can still be visited. During the first half of the twentieth century, Tetouan was in fact a Spanish protectorate, though it became part of the new Moroccan state in 1956.  Today Tetouan is a bustling city as will be well evidenced when you visit its medina and Kasbah, and its Hassan II square where new and old towns meet, also home to the stunning Bab Er-Rouah, gate to the royal palace.  Spanish influence is felt throughout the town, but nowhere more than in the beautiful Spanish Cathedral.
