The Cathedral of Tangier

The Spanish cathedral

Although construction began in 1956, it was not until 1961 that work on this very modern building was completed. Popularly known to locals as the Spanish Cathedral, the white building became a symbol of the Spanish presence and of the Franciscan order in Morocco. Built right in front of one of Tangier's main mosques, that of Mohammed V, it features large stained glass windows behind the altar that act as a source of beautiful natural light. Interestingly, for years the cathedral's tower was the highest point in the city, so to change this fact the Great Mosque was built.
