The Melting Pot Hostel is located in the heart of Tangier's Medina. Being one of the biggest Medina of the country, it's one of the places in Tangier that attracts more the attention of its visitors.
Its history is very ancient, the occupation of its land it's testified from the antiquity.
Surrounded by walls, the Kasbah and the Medina of Tangier have many historical sites:
- "The Big Zoco" is the main entrance door to the Medina, usually there are peasant women selling vegetables they grow themselves.
-"The Mosque of Sidi Bu Abid" with a minaret covered by beautiful polychrome ceramic.
- "The Mendubia" was the residence of the Mendub, responsible for watching for the sultan at the foreign powers during the age in which Tangier was an international region.
- "The Kasbah of Tangier", situated in the west of the Medina, is another place of great interest. Here is located the "Dar el Makzen", the ancient palace of the Governor, built by the order of Mulay Ismail in the XVII century. Now it is the seat of the Museum of Moroccan Arts, which rooms surround a beautifully tiles decorated courtyard, and where you can admire objects coming from all Morocco: carpets, jewels, ceramic tiles, fabrics and textiles, among others. There is also a part surrounded by the historical walls, which is the most elevated point of the city.
At the end there is a spectacular viewpoint from which you can see the Gibraltar Strait...a phenomenal view.
