Its architecture inspired by the Andalusian style of Granada, it is characterized by its narrow alleys and spacious homes which made it a beautiful masterpiece that match the rest of the Moroccan old cities.
Visitor finds pleasure in walking among its streets and its “Riyads” provide a journey into the past with rich architectural heritage. The city joined the World Heritage List of UNESCO in 1997.
Tetouan had a great importance in the Moroccan and Islamic history, as reconstructed by the Muslims who were expelled after the fall of Andalusia during the fifteenth century.
