Fodor's Expert Review St. Andrew's Church

Ville Nouvelle Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice

While Morocco is now a Muslim country, this towering Anglican church still stands as a vestige of Tangier's international days. Consecrated in 1905, on land granted by Queen Victoria, you'll get a sense of the flourishing interfaith relations that Tangier was once famous for in the church's interior; the Lord's Prayer is engraved in Arabic behind the altar and quotes from the Koran appear across the Moorish-style walls. A cemetery surrounds the church and holds graves of British and Commonwealth soldiers who died fighting in North Africa during World War II. The caretaker is almost always on-site, and for a small donation to the church (around 20 DH), he will astound you with his knowledge about the church and those buried here.
