ODYSSEUS will be held for the first time in the African continent, in the beautiful city of Tangier Morocco. The city is on the Strait of Gibraltar, which separates Africa from Europe, at about 15 km from the Spanish coast and 20 km from the biggest port in Africa, Tanger Med. Located in the intersection between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, Tangier is one of the oldest cities in North Africa that throughout history was regarded as an important strategic place, crucial to the trade between the two continents, Europe and Africa. Labelled the bride of the north, Tangier is one of the most beautiful cities in Morocco that encompasses a wide historical and cultural heritage. The fusion of contrasted ethnicities and traditions have given Tangier a unique and diversified finesse.
