Tetuan in Arabic means "the eyes" or "the sources." Sometimes known with the nickname "The white dove", is a city in the north of Morocco.
Founded in the 3rd century BC and destroyed by the Romans in the 1st century BC, the legions used it as a military detachment for 200 years. It was not repopulated until 1307 when one of the Sultan Merinis decided to build a fortified city on the current site of Tetuan. The city was destroyed in 1339 by the King of Castile and was not again occupied until the 16th century
by Jews from Spain.
The Spanish blocked their port to avoid piracy and entered a stage of decline that did not cease until the time of Mulay Ismail. Spain reconquered it in 1862 maintaining a certain influence in the city until in 1913, and with the protectorate they occupied it again. That is why it has sometimes been said that Tetuán is the most Hispanic in Moroccan cities.
