AL-HOCEIMA
Colonial houses

The Spanish started to develop Al-Hoceima from 1925, then known as Villa Sanjuro, named after the general that landed here during the Rif rebellion.
The Spanish didn't leave too much architecture in town, and the Spanish college is the best example of expensive early 20th century houses.
