On a cliff in Marshan, there is a plateau overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. There you can see the Punic-Roman tombs. The site is about 450 meters from the Kasbah and not too far from the king’s summer palace.

Marked only by this sign and the columns that frame the view to the sea, you will find visitors sitting on the rocks, taking photos and enjoying the sea breezes that waft overhead.

Most of the graves face the sea and from their location, you can discern the old gates of Tangier on the west side. Ninety-eight graves were exhumed in 1910 with fifty being found as late as 1960. Today only about two dozen of them can be seen at this location. They are in the shape of a box engraved into the stone.

Punic and neo-Punic artifacts dating back to the first century B.C. were found at this location. Today they are contained in the exhibit at the Kasbah Museum. There is a small sarcophagus, the size used for a child, an urn, a small broken glass vase and an incense burner.

This is a great place to visit before taking the walk further down the Hafa cliff to Café Hafa for tea and Baysar!
