History of Tangier








Misinformation in Writing

It's easy for the mind to be immediately drawn to the Sahara Desert when you think of Morocco.
Indeed, several authors with little knowledge of Tangier describe the city and the region as if it were an oasis town rather than a major port,
and lean on images of flowing sands.



My website will highlight misleading statements and accounts, wherever I find them.
