“Café Hafa is a cafe in Tangier, Morocco, located along the cliff top overlooking the Bay of Tangier. Opened in 1921, the cafe has retained its 1920s style of decor and through the years has been visited by numerous writers and singers, from Paul Bowles and William S. Burroughs, to The Beatles and the Rolling Stones.[1] The cafe is known for its mint tea, a Tangier special brew. With its simplicity, with its dominance over the Strait of Gibraltar, with its plastic chairs, its mosaic tables, with its blue walls, with its trees that grow without concern to none and with charm to which no one can resist, the Café Hafa has built its glory, its history and its reputation that crossed borders and have inspired numerous international writers.”

“Selon la légende, c'est au Cap Spartel que se rejoignent les eaux de la Méditerranée avec celles de l'Océan Atlantique, là ou nait le Détroit de Gibraltar. Situé à quelques kilomètres à l'est de la ville, il domine du haut d'une falaise jonchée d'arbustes de 110 mètres la mer.  Il était connu du temps des romains comme le Cap Ampelusia il prend ensuite le nom de l'archipel de Spartel, englouti sous les eaux du Détroit de Gibraltar en 9400 avant JC, des îles qui selon certains historiens seraient le siège de l'Atlantide tant recherchée. Elles ont donné lieu au banc de sable connu par les marins de la Région sous le nom de Majouan ou Spartel.  Le phare sui y trône actuellement est le premier phare du Maroc et il vient de fêter son 150e anniversaire. Il a été inauguré en 1864 et il servait pour avertir les marins des risques proches de la côte. D'une grande beauté, il est l'un des icônes de la ville et de la Région. ”

Establishment
“Musée de la Kasbah Il s'agit d'un musée où l'architecture est autant un tirage au sort que les expositions. Installée à Dar el-Makhzen, un ancien palais de sultan au bord de la médina, l'institution dispose d'un jardin traditionnel dans la cour et contient des expositions sur l'histoire de Tanger, de la préhistoire aux grandes dynasties islamiques qui ont forgé le Maroc. La meilleure partie? Les spectaculaires mosaïques de sol de la ville romaine de Volubilis.”

“Asilah medina is small...there are only about 500 houses and it is bounded on one side by the sea, so you can wander around wondering what lies behind those doors, see Rasuli's palace, and have a friendly haggle in the shops. To see the medina completely quiet...stroll around on Friday morning 9-10:30 ”

Et une manière de découvrir les petits paradis que représentent les ambassades et les consulats dans les pays émergents, le contraste entre la ruelle sans âme et les patios privés et les luxueux salons de la Légation est saisissant et on imagine la mission diplomatique dans le contexte du Tanger du dix-neuvième siècle! ”
