Peaceful, fragrant haven
The imposing silhouette of Dar el Makhzen dominates Tangier's casbah. Formerly the governor's palace, it was built in the XVII century and stands around a splendid courtyard adorned with glazed porcelain. The Museum of Moroccan Arts is housed in the princely apartments, which honour its name with its painted wood ceilings, its sculpted plaster and its mosaic tiles. The Andalusian garden is a peaceful, fragrant haven that evokes scenes of a thousand nights. Unfortunately, some parts of it have begun to deteriorate, and it would be wonderful if it was completely restored in the near future.
