Navigating Tangier’s Labyrinth

The medina in Tangier,  at the mouth of the Mediterranean roughly nine miles from Spain, is a jumble of blind alleys and intersections. The buildings huddle close together, creating a jumble of blind angles and six-dimensional intersections, making it easy to wander aimlessly.
From above, the medina's narrow alleyways look like a befuddling labyrinth.
The Casbah, the walled fortress atop the medina, provides views of the Straits.
A seaside institution, Cafe El Hafa entices visitors to sit on one of its dozen terraces.
A fruit market open late at the edge of the Tangier medina.
