'''Tétouan''' (from the Berber (Berber language) ''ⵜⵉⵜⴰⵡⵉⵏ'', Arabic (Arabic language): تطوان, ) is a city in northern Morocco. The Berber name means literally "the eyes" and figuratively "the water springs". Tetouan is one of the two major ports of Morocco on the Mediterranean Sea. It lies a few miles south of the Strait of Gibraltar, and about 40 mi (60 km) E.S.E. of Tangier. In 2004 the city had 320,539 inhabitants (census figure). Tetouan's civil airport Sania Ramel Airport is located 6 km to the east.

Arabic (Arabic language) is the official language but it is not used for everyday dialogue. The city has its own dialect, L.
