A former corsair capital with a sandy port, Larache is ideal for a peaceful stay. The Liberation Square occupies a central location with its arcades studded with small restaurants. From there, go to the Medina via the Moorish gate of Bab el Khemis, then to the old Spanish town and the Moulay Ismaïl avenue, on the flanks of the ocean. 3 miles to the north, you will find Lixus, the Phoenician and Roman city.
