The port city of Tangier has captured the imagination of travelers, writers and artists for centuries. Located at the strategic Strait of Gibraltar, this international city exhibits cultural influences from both Europe and Africa. From Tangier's shores one can easily view Spain's southern coast, just nine miles to the north across the Strait. While in Tangier, students will explore the historic medina, kasbah, artists' quarter, and the breezy seafront promenade.
Students will gain an appreciation for Tangier's strategic location, and will be able to discuss why this location made sense as the hub of the first American consulate in the Muslim world.
