TETOUAN world cultural heritage by UNECO

Hello Luxxxers i have been in TETOUAN city twice times because it`s very far away from my city what can i say The Medina of Tetouan has been proclaimed a world cultural heritage by UNECO in 1997 and should therefore receive much more publicity as a historical, architectural, cultural and artistic centre. This traditionally clear whitewashed city has earned the title of the white dove. This unique Mediterranean city strands out for its strategic importance, as it is less than sixty kilometres from Algceciras northwards and sixty kilometres from Tangier in the western direction. In one day, tourists can enjoy its beaches, which are undoubtedly among the most beautiful in the entire Mediterranean area, its evergreen Rif Mountains which spread eastwards along a distance of more than 500 kilometres and its five century old Medina, the cultural capital of Northern Morocco. Even though the Moroccan Ministry of Tourism and the National Office of Tourism have turned their back on our city, giving preference to the so called Imperial cities and the rough Atlantic Coast, the Tetouan-Asmir Association considers the Mediterranean city of Tetouan to be one of the most recommendable cities to visit in Northern Morocco
