Comment

At this stand container vessels are sold for water and oil, couscoussieres to cook wheat meal (couscous), and tajines, to slowly steam cook different vegetable, meat, and fish dishes characteristic of the Moroccan kitchen.

Headquarters for diplomatic delegations were found to have been established in the city of Tangier since the end of the 19th century and in 1923 it became a shared protectorate by the Spanish, French, and British.

Entering into the 30’s, this international zone became a center for espionage and at one point strategically located on commercial routes, very close to the Strait of Gibraltar.

Many things were cooked in that Tajine called Tangier during the Spanish protectorate years that inexorably marked History, not only for Spain, but for all of Europe.
