TANGIER
Kasbah place

Tangier, Morocco


Tangier, Morocco

A father and his kids rushing through the microscopic gate near Belvedere, which leads to the sea terrace where you always will find a handful of locals looking quietly over the sea.


The Kasbah place fronts the former sultanate palace, which now has been converted into a museum. The Kasbah was earlier this century one of the most attractive areas of Tangier, but it has lost quite a bit of its old attractions, and there is a strangely remote and empty feeling to it.
The Kasbah place is dominated by its fortifications which are in very good condtion.
