Morocco was the first power that recognized the United States of America as an independent country, and in response an American embassy was put up here in Tangier back in 1777.
It now serves as a museum where there is no entry fee, but every visitor has to be guided around by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. The interior is not really fantastic or impressive, but always tasteful. There are also collections of art of highly differing quality (locally stationed American artists). You will pass through several reception rooms as well as the tiny garden just one storey above the street.
