History & Patrimony
Tangier, Ksar es Seghir

Où dormir à Tanger?

Ksar Seghir (or Ksar Sghir) is located on the Mediterranean littoral between Tangier at Sebta, 33 km from Tangier....
Used successively as military fortress and army port the troops heading to Spain, by the Almoravides which baptize it:Ksar Mesmouda, Almohades:Ksar Al Majaz, and Mérinides: Ksar Al Majar...

In 1287 the sultan Abou Yaakoub Youssef ordered the reinforcement of Ksar Sghir and strengthened it with a circular enclosure crowned with bastions of monumental gates. However, his efforts did not prevent the Portuguese from occupying the city in 1458.

At the beginning of the XVIIth century, the
port was used for unloading Moorish refugees driven chased from Andalusia.

The Merinide enclosure is protected by 29 circular towers with three monumental gates: Bab Al Bahr, Bab Sebta, and Bab Fez.
PS : The site is very appreciated by the habitants of Tangier during Sundays, which take advantage from its beach and its numerous fish restaurants.
