Tangier American Legation Museum, Taza-Al Hoceima-Taounate, Morocco 

The American Legation Museum and Research Centre in Morocco is located in the Medina of Tangier, which was a fortified city decades ago. The beautiful Rue d’Amerique lies close to where the museum is situated. In 1821 the Sultan of Morocco, Moulay Suliman, gave this building as a gift to the United States of America. This was a significant event for the U.S. government as it was one of the first pieces of property the government had ever owned from abroad.

The American Legation Museum is not only a building that is full of stories from the past, but it is also a beautiful building architecturally speaking. In the 18th century the American Legation Museum was originally a stone structure. It was later integrated into a complex that had been enlarged. There was also a beautiful courtyard surrounding the building providing an attractive setting for the stone building.
