Grand Bazaar in Tangier

The Tangier Souk Grand (Grand Socco) is the commercial centre of the city. It is one of the most frequently visited places by city dwellers and tourists. It is the gateway to the medina, and is chaired by the famous square Place du Grand Socco or 9 avril,linking the medina and the new town. Sidi Bou Abid Mosque, built in 1917, presides over this area and has a minaret with pretty polychrome tiles. It is a pleasure to walk through these streets, full of slipper shops, spices, bazaars with all kinds of fabrics, food markets, fishmongers, butchers and greengrocers ... You can not miss going into the shops to haggle with the locals.

9 de Abril Square

Excellent

You have to be careful crossing, the cars go like crazy, as they say 'the last is the stupidest'. It is surrounded by restaurants where the waiters will do anything to convince you to eat there. It´s a great idea to enter the Medina and lose yourself in the streets.
