Just like any Moroccan city, Tangier is famous for its beautiful bazaars. The most popular and largest one is located in the central part of the city. It is called "Grand Socco". In addition to the luxury choice of products this market is a great place to see wonderful performances of street artists. It’s really hard to find another place where snake charmers, dancers, magicians and fakirs demonstrate their amazing performance to visitors. In this market you can also buy traditional souvenirs, most popular gold jewelry, silver utensils, as well as rugs and blankets made of wool.
Among the architectural sights we should definitely mention Palace of Dar el Makhzen, which was built in the 17th century by the order of the Mules Ismail. For many years it was the main residence of the rulers. Starting from the 19th century it lost its status and was kept abandoned. Today, there are two museums in the palace – the palace of ancient history and Moroccan art. The palace’s inner courtyard is decorated with statues and fountains. This is a perfect place for walking.
