Tetouan

The Petit Socco is in the Medinah, close to the American Legation Museum. There's a cluster of businesses, like cafes with patios, a very fine hotel and spa, and just around the corners are small shops. The Petit Socco has its place in history for being at the center of prostitution and drug deals. This small square is famous, yet not very touristy, so you can actually sit and watch daily life and hustling in Tangier for hours.

First to Review

Tangier's Petit Socco has lost a lot of the charm that used to attract famous writers from years gone by, who used to frequent the series of fancy hotels that had previously circled around this little square. However, with a good imagination you can still envisage what life used to be like here and it is still a great place to enjoy a mint tea and watch the world go by. It now has a rough and ready feel about it, which is a far cry from the atmosphere the square used to create here, but makes it interesting nevertheless.
