Discover the city of Larache (also El Araich).
The harbor city of Larache, located in northern Morocco’s Tanger-Tétoun region, is a popular summer resort, both with Moroccans and visitors to this exotic North African country. One of the biggest attractions to the town is its spectacular long, tree-edged beach, along with a carefree holiday atmosphere that has visitors lingering in the late afternoon and into the evening to enjoy one another’s company. Larache’s Spanish and Andalusian architecture and numerous historic and cultural landmarks get their fair share of attention from visitors too.
Attractions to see while visiting Larache include the old Spanish prison which currently houses the archeological museum, mostly displaying items recovered from the nearby archeological site of Lixus. The view from the museum is spectacular, with the Loukos River below and the hills of Lixus in the distance. The old Spanish fortress, with its imposing walls and huge canons, will also be of interest to history enthusiasts, while the nearby park provides a great place for a picnic in the shade of the trees. The old section of Larache is Moorish in style, with narrow roads, alleyways, and flights of steps leading downhill in the direction of the sea.
Located north of Larache, on the Loukkos Riverbank, are the remains of the ancient city of Lixus, built in 1180 BC by a Berber King. For those interested in history, Lixus is a worthwhile trip to make when visiting Larache.
