"Cape Spartel" Tangier Off The Beaten Path Tip by keeweechic

Tangier Off The Beaten Path: 40 reviews and 62 photos


From Tangier you travel the road leading through the La Montagne area to Cap Spartel, sometimes termed the most north-westerly point of Africa, but that seems to be debateable. The cape has had many names including Cape of the Vines and Cape Ampelusium. The promontory stands at the entrance of the Strait of Gibraltar at some 1,000 feet above the sea.
