Tour description

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
  • Mellah Bali (old Jewish Quarter)
  • Artisan District
  • Tanning house
  • Upper market (souk fouki)
  • Moriscos neighbourhoods
  • New Feddan Square
  • Royal Palace (Hassan II Square)
  • And much more!

 See you soon!

My guide Mustapha had a very friendly manner and was full of energy and knowledge. He went well beyond what I expected on the walk. I recommend him to anyone who wants to experience Tetouan 's Medina.

Mustapha no pudo acompañarnos y en cambio el tour lo realizó Mohamed, es un hombre encantador y de una forma muy amena. Dedicó más tiempo del establecido sin problema y aprendimos mucho. Fue muy agradable su compañía.
