From the harbour, our Tangier shore excursion first heads to Cape Spartel. From here, the most northwestern point of mainland Africa, we can enjoy spectacular views of the Atlantic and also visit the Caves of Hercules.
Evidence of habitation in Neolithic times, dating back to 6,000 BC has been found in these caves. It is said that Hercules stayed also stayed here before his 11thlabour of collecting golden apples.
The Tangier shore excursion continues with a visit to the Kasbah and to the old town, known as the Medina. Here we can explore the narrow streets that are lined with traditional shops and stalls. Many specialise in leather goods, wooden handicrafts, silverwork or traditional Moroccan clothing.
Finally, we’ll head to the Grand Souk, or Grand Socco. This square started life as a large marketplace filled with traders, snake charmers and musicians. In modern day Tangier, we can still see some traders but the Grand Souk has become much more. Seen as the heart of the city, it’s the place where old Tangier and new Tangier meet and where modern culture mixes with the historic.
After the visit we return to the port in time for boarding.
Note that: The excursion will not visit any shopping district.
