I was pleasantly surprised when we visited Tetoun. It was only a stop on our trip from Tangier to Chefcaoun. Too bad as we could have stayed much longer. The median was clean and very white.

It's an old medina and the place were full of local products, shops, market and a lots of variety food here. You can also get some Spanish products in the market as well. I was here just for a short visit.

Was here for couple of hours before heading to Chefchaouen. I was able to walk around the city especially in the old medina. Just another northern side of Morocco, seems a bit like Tangier as my point of view.

An ancient city with a collection of many small shops, all of which you can buy from gifts, souvenirs and clothes. It has many old but still occupied houses. It also features some archeological sites.

The medina is an interesting maze of streets. A huge market and easy to get lost and feel like you will never find the end. It's a good experience for an hour or so.

Tetouan would be an option but I recommend you to take a taxi to safe time. I recommend highly the medina. Just go with the flow, it's a wonderful experience if you're open to the real Moroccan life.
