Market day on Thursday and Sunday when not Ramadan. Old cinema still a hub of activity. Meeting point in old town with benches. Fountain without water. Good for local people watching.

Large square that connects the Medina to the newer parts of Tangier. Looked for an inviting place to eat and struck out. Good to walk thru but no need to linger.

Great place to come and observe and take in the scenery. Architecture is made up of modern Moroccan and old colonial buildings. Quiet a nice place to sit and rest, quiet green which is pleasant.
