Experience Africa Itinerary Tangier Enter the medieval Medina, a vast, picturesque, vibrant souk - the ‘Grand Socco'. Walk around the many tea houses and the Mendoubia Gardens with their eight-hundred-year-old trees. The Sidi Bounabid Mosque, its minaret decoration with multi-hued faiences dominating the Medina, the Kasbah Square with its portico of white marble columns and the great Méchouar where the pashas once granted audiences. Caves of the Oracle of Hercules Leaving Tangier, we set out towards the west on a zigzag road passing through the wealthy residential district of the Marché aux Boeufs. Along the new mountain road edged with elegant, sumptuous villas, ornate gates and beautiful gardens, the Governor's Residence and the King's Summer Palace comes to light. We follow the mountain road towards the seaward extremity of Jbel el Kbir at Cape Spartel, set on the Atlantic Coast, considered by political convention to be the most north-western point of Africa, the African intersection of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Just before reaching the striking, square shaped lighthouse the scenic drive comes upon long golden ocean beaches and the blue Atlantic Ocean. Here we shall stop briefly to marvel at the panoramic view. In the 17th century, this wooded hill area provided cover for the Moors in their battles against the Portuguese and the English. We carry on to enjoy a visit of the Caves of the Oracle of Herakles, where legend has it this Greek demi-god, son of Zeus, breathed his last breath after separating Europe from Africa. Lunch We will drive back to the old medina of Tangier for lunch at a traditional Moroccan cuisine restaurant.
