  Courtyard garden, American Legation, Tangiers
by Paul2001

Most Americans are not aware that the Sultan of Tangiers was the first government that recognized America's independence from Great Britian. The first oversea American Legation is in Tangiers. Today it is a museum that you can visit. I was given a small tour by a young American educated Moroccan woman that gave me a very interesting history. The Legation is well maintained and consists of a library and a very charming courtyard garden.
The Legation can be difficult to find but is located near a small gate near the wall on the south part of the old town of Tangiers.
