Tanger

Tánger, La posición estratégica de esta ciudad en el Estrecho de Gibraltar ha supuesto que esta zona fuera disputada por numerosos pueblos desde tiempos inmemorables. La ciudad como tal fue fundada por los fenicios en torno al 1450 a.C., aunque diversos pueblos se atribuyeron su fundación en base a diversos relatos mitológicos, siendo el más famosos el relato griego que aseguraba que Heracles (el Hércules latino) durmió en una cueva cercana antes de enfrentarse a una de las doce pruebas, siendo uno de sus hijos quien fundó la ciudad. A lo largo de su historia la ciudad fue cartaginesa, romana, visigoda, bizantina, bereber, árabe, portuguesa y británica, llegando a convertirse en un importante centro para las relaciones diplomáticas europeas a finales del siglo XIX y principio del XX. La ciudad pasó a ser un condominio belga, español, estadounidense, holandés, portugués, inglés, soviético desde 1925 (a los que se unió Italia en 1928), con un periodo intermedio de soberanía española (1940-1945), hasta la independencia de Marruecos el 20 de octubre de 1956, en el que se inicia un proceso político que culmina con el reconocimiento internacional de la soberanía marroquí en Tánger en 1960.

La situación geopolítica de este enclave multicultural a lo largo de su historia ha hecho que este fuera el destino de numerosos artistas extranjeros así como la cuna de muchos otros artistas locales, convirtiéndose en la época del condominio en un paraíso para todo tipo de gente de vida bohemia.

Esta ciudad cosmopolita, de rápido crecimiento en la actualidad, presenta un atractivo especial en el recorrido de las empinadas callejuelas de su medina, en su paseo marítimo y en las cercanas y míticas Cuevas de Hércules.

TestimonialsWhat clients say about us

I am absolutely amazed with the treatment received by Africa Aventura during our stay in Morocco. Yunes has been not only a tour guide, but also a storyteller (he is an open book, you can talk with him of whatever you want to know), a waiter, a photographer, a mediator, a 24 hours personal assistant and a long etc. From the first day till the last one, he has accompanied us at every moment: In hotels: he has kept abreast of every detail, from reception, when he helped us to bring the luggage to the bedroom, to show us how to switch the air conditioned on, or even to give us towels at the swimming pool when we realized we had forgotten them. At meals: Yunes seated with us (we invited him to do so) like one more, but he was not relaxed like us because he was checking out that absolutely everything was perfect. If you needed something and the waiter was not close to asking for it, he stopped eating to bring you that thing. I remember when there were crepes to have for dessert and they were so delicious that I wanted to repeat. Then he gave me his. By the way, were couldn’t believe it when he took us to his own house where her mother cooked for us during the whole morning (the best cous-cous I have ever tried for sure). During transfers: Yunes came with us in our cars (we didn’t rent any) and he guided the route while explaining what the landscape offered. Also how people dressed, the differences between one looks and others, etc., etc. During activities: He organized everything too. He stayed even until the party in haimas reached his end just to make sure everything was okay (actually he was really tired because he wakes up at 4:30am to pray and then he never stops, but even that, he is always the last one lying down). At the time of purchases: Yunes took us to very good places, not only for the quality, but also taking in to account to whom the money was destined. To give an example, we saw many scarves shops, but he recommended us to buy them to a woman and her daughters, who started a kind of project to help the women involved. In definitely, Yunes has been the most incredible trip partner (I cannot say guide, it would not be fair) I have ever known. And now, I am sure I can say that a new friend has come into my life. Thank you Yunes, this trip without you wouldn’t be absolutely the same… Don’t ever change! You’re incredible!

Incredible experience with AfricaAventuras. Our guide Jammal was very nice and he made the trip very funny! Also Younes helped us for any question we had. A perfect trip to feel the culture, traditions, food, dancing, etc. The desert was a place for reflection and disconnection perfect for us! I really recommend it!.
