Algeciras Guide

Located on the Bay of Gibralta in Spain, the port city of Algeciras is located in the south of Spain and is mainly a transport hub and industrial city. The port plays an important role in the city's economy as it is the main embarkation point between Spain and Tangier as well as to other ports in Morocco and to the Canary Islands. The city is a large fishing industry and also exports many of its locally produced products, including cereals, tobacco and livestock. The city is quite popular with tourists although it can't be described as a particularly beautiful city although it does have a gritty charm and has managed to retain a real port atmosphere, perhaps unlike many other Spanish resorts.

The city's port is one of the largest in Europe and also in the world in three categories: transhipment, cargo and container, and is located around 20 km to the north east of Tarifa on the Rio de la Miel, the southernmost river on the Iberian Peninsular and on continental Europe. Visitors can also, from time to time, see whales and dolphins swim close to the port.

Tangier Med Guide

Tangier-Med is a cargo port located around 40 km to the east of the Moroccan city of Tangier and is one of the largest ports on the Mediterranean Sea and in Africa by capacity, and was opened in 2007. The second phase of construction in the port began in 2009 in order to cater for the growing demand of the port's services. As well as catering for cargo, Tangier-Med is also home to a new passenger terminal, which replaces the city of Tangier's port as the destination for ferries and passenger ships arriving from Europe. Located inside the terminal building you will fine a Bureau de Change, ATMs, and a small shop selling newspapers, book, cigarettes and snacks etc. There is also a café on the upper floor.

The history of Tangier is very rich, due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from before the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
