History & Patrimony
Larache, history of the city

Where to sleep in Larache?

80 km to the south of Tangier, at the edge of the Loukos wadi, this very charming city of blue and white houses, remains deeply marked by the Spanish occupation. It is in Larache, where he lived a long time, which Jean Genet rests.
Founded by the Muslim conquerors coming from Arabia in the VIIth century and strengthened in the end of the XVth century by the sovereigns of Fez, Larache was used as stopover to the Algerian and Turkish corsairs, and had to undergo the attacks of the Portuguese and the Spanish, who finally accepted it as a gift from the saadian sovereign in 1610. The city became again Moroccan in the end of the XVIIth century, and then the Spanish seized the city and remained there for nearly half a century,
until 1956.
