Walk through six centuries of history in one day!
Hi travellers! I'm Mustapha, I have been a tour guide for more than 7 years, and I also have a degree in hospitality management. I have been to Spain, France, and UK, and lived and worked in the middle east for 2 years. I look forward to walking you around this beautiful medina and its history See you soon!
Welcome to the historical medina of Tetuan!
The Medina of Tetuan developed on the steep slopes of the Jebel Dersa. In the Islamic period, it had particular importance from the 8th century onwards since it served as the point of connection between Morocco and Andalusia. After the Reconquest, the town was rebuilt by refugees in this region who had been expelled by the Spanish. This is well illustrated by its art and architecture which reveal clear Andalusian influence. It is one of the smallest of the Moroccan medinas but indisputably the most complete and the majority of its buildings have remained untouched by subsequent outside influences.
During our tour, we will explore:
- Jewish neighbourhood (New Mellah)
- Isaac Ben Guellid Synagogue
- Grand Mosque
