Title

  • Tetouan, Morocco: Its Specificity and World Cultural Heritage Dimension

Summary

  • Tetouan is the largest North Moroccan Mediterranean city, but it is not one of nation's larger, famous or glamorous cities. Yet Tetouan stands out for its incredible capacity to incorporate Andalusian, Ottoman, Arab and Middle Eastern, Berber or Amazgh, Jewish, European Christian cultural elements into one predominantly Arabic and Islamic society and culture. M'hammad Benaboud of the Tetouan Asmir Association presents the multi-dimensional essence of the city's urban and architectural, cultural and artistic development. Through rich images of the city, Benaboud shows why Tetouan -- a UNESCO World Heritage site -- is internationally recognized as a place of exceptional cultural heritage worthy of preservation.
