TANGIER
Place de France

Tangier, Morocco

Place de France is one of the focal points for activities in the modern parts of Tangier. Some of the busiest streets radiates from it but with all the cafés around here, it is a place where many stop to have a coffee and meet friends.
Gran Cafe de Paris is a landmark in Tangier, and the place where foreign agents, expatriates and Moroccan nationalists used to meet through all the changing periods of Tangier in this century. Even today it is one of the city's most popular places, and very different from many other fashionable cafés in Morocco you get good coffee here. Outside, cheap plastic chairs destroy the ambience, but the interior is almost unchanged with deep skin chairs.
