Tangier is one of the most popular cities in Morocco. Rich in history thanks to its geographic location – laying on both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea – it’s a city with many influences. Traditions were passed down from the Spanish, the Jewish and of course the Moors. Many of these customs have preserved over the centuries, including hammams: public steam baths where people go to cleanse, exfoliate, relax and rejuvenate. Here are the top hammam in Tangier for you to try!
