This region of sandy Mediterranean shores and calm sapphire crests will offer you some of the most stunning beachside views in all of Morocco. As the former center of trade between Spain and Morocco, Tetouan, the colonial capital founded by Berbers in early BC, now stands as a shining relic of beauty in Northern Morocco. A visit to Place Moulay el Mehdi allows you to experience Spanish-influenced architecture and various museums. The Archaeological Museum of Tetouan houses some well-preserved Roman relics and pottery inspired by Moroccan, Roman and Spanish heritage. Feel free to trek through the Rif Mountains, but come prepared, for the Rif receives more rainfall than any other region of Morocco.
