Market shopping in Tetouan
- Sort by:
Tetouan's medina has the usual mix of craft shops and showrooms for the souvenir hunter. Wood and leatherwork are the local specialities. Unique to the Rif are the eye-catching mendeels (hand-woven, brightly coloured striped cloths), worn by farmers. The best place to buy them is from the women on the tiny square to the northeast of Bab er-Rouah. The tannery is the best place to browse for leatherwork.
This government-sponsored emporium is a hive of activity, with carpet weavers, leatherworkers, jewellers and woodworkers all plying their trades. Prices are fixed.
