Tangier Med Guide

The cargo port of Tangier-Med is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Tangier in Morocco. The port opened in 2007 and is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and in Africa. The second phase of the port's development began in 2009 in order to meet the increasing demand for the port's services. The port also deals with passenger traffic which is accommodated in the new passenger terminal, which replaced the city of Tangier port as the destination for ferries arriving from Europe. Facilities in the new terminal include a bureau de change, a small shop, a cafe and ATM's.

Tangier's history has been influenced by the many different civilisations and cultures that have ruled the city since 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.
