Due to the historical presence of many civilizations, Tangier has a rich history that begins when Antaeus, son of Poseidon, would have chosen to give his wife’s name, Tingis (“Tanjah” in Arabic), to a place on the Mediterranean coast. But it was most likely the Berbers who created Tinga, the lagoon city.
The Phoenicians installed a business counter from Lixus, around the 7th or the 6th century BC. After the fall and the destruction of Carthage, Tangier became Roman and was even declared the capital of Mauretania, Tingitane. Later, during the 8th century of our era, it served the Arab goals in Europe.
The latter considered Tangier a strategic post stormed by Berber troops, freshly converted to Islam, and became Arab for the first time. The city became Moroccan (through the Idrissides), then Spanish, through the Cordoba Omeyyades, then Moroccan again through the significant dynasties.
