The Port of Tangier connects Africa to the Mediterranean via the Strait of Gibraltar, and is one of the country's most important ports, a true cultural and economic crossroads between Europe and Morocco. Costa cruises in the Atlantic Ocean moor at its docks to set off to explore the city. The medina will be the first destination of your trip to Tangier. Narrow streets that climb into a maze of houses and small squares, up the hill overlooking the harbour. Here, in a raised position is the Kasbah, the fortress and one-time the residence of the sultan. The heart of the old town is the Place Petit Socco, very close to the Grand Mosque. The market square, the Grand Socco, separates the medina from the districts of the Ville Nouvelle. Walking through Place de France, your cruise to Tangier will take you back to the 1930s and the French atmosphere that the city experienced at that time. Here you can enjoy some shopping, relax in one of the many places, or move on the Terrasse des Paresseux that will offer you the best view of Tangier harbour.
