Tangier Med Guide

Tangier-Med is a cargo port located around 40 km to the east of the Moroccan city of Tangier and is one of the largest ports on the Mediterranean Sea and in Africa by capacity, and was opened in 2007. The second phase of construction in the port began in 2009 in order to cater for the growing demand of the port's services. As well as catering for cargo, Tangier-Med is also home to a new passenger terminal, which replaces the city of Tangier's port as the destination for ferries and passenger ships arriving from Europe. Located inside the terminal building you will fine a Bureau de Change, ATMs, and a small shop selling newspapers, book, cigarettes and snacks etc. There is also a café on the upper floor.

The history of Tangier is very rich, due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from before the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
