Location: Larache is an important harbour town in the region Tanger-Tétouan in northern Morocco. It was founded in the 7th century when a group of Muslim soldiers from Arabia extended their camp at Lixus onto the south bank of the Loukkos River. The city is located about 79 km from Tangier Ibn Battuta International Airport and 168 km from the capital Rabat. The busiest place in town is the central square called Liberation Square (former Plaza de Espana). It's built in Arabo-Andalusian style with many cafes and terraces around. In the old Medina, one can discover the Souk Esseghir (Petit Souk), the vegetable market, colorful houses and a maze of narrow streets and passages leading down to the port. During the summer, many cultural, sport and artistic events are organized.
