Tangier Med Guide

The cargo port of Tangier-Med is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Tangier in Morocco. The port opened in 2007 and is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and in Africa. The second phase of the port's development began in 2009 in order to meet the increasing demand for the port's services. The port also deals with passenger traffic which is accommodated in the new passenger terminal, which replaced the city of Tangier port as the destination for ferries arriving from Europe. Facilities in the new terminal include a bureau de change, a small shop, a cafe and ATM's.

Tangier's history has been influenced by the many different civilisations and cultures that have ruled the city since 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.


Algeciras Guide

The Spanish port city of Algeciras is located in the south of the country and lies on the shores of the Bay of Gibralta. The city has a long maritime history but today is a modern and cosmopolitan city that is aided by its important position between two continents (Europe and Africa) and its large port. The first settlement on the site of the present city was the Roman town of Iulia Traducta, from the 1st century AD. Later in 711, Tarik founded Al-Yazirat-al-Hadra (Green Island) on the Roma ruins.

There are a number of popular visitor attractions and important monuments at Plaza Alta in the city, including the Parochial Church of Nuestra Senora de la Palma and the small Chapel of Nuestra Senora de Europa. The city's architecture is quite lovely and good examples include the City Hall, the Market Place, the Chapel of Santo Cristo de la Alameda and the Chapel of San Anton.

The city's port is located around 20 km to the north east of Tarifa on the Rio de la Miel, Europe's most southerly river. Visitors travelling out of the port should keep an eye open for wales and dolphins which can sometimes be seen in the waters outside the port.
