Information
Area - 45,061 sq.km; Capital - Tetuan
A former Spanish Protectorate, territory on the northwest coast of Africa.
Morocco's strategically position as a gateway to western Europe made it a target
for several European powers. SPAIN (ESPANA) was one of the Foreign Powers who kept Post
Offices in Morocco (between 1903 to 1914). In 1912 it gained a small strip of
land on the northern shore which became a Spanish Protectorate and was named
Spanish Morocco. The city of Tangier gained the status of international zone
(see also TANGIER, French P.O.). Between 1940 to 1945 the city was annexed to
Spanish Morocco and in 1956 it was returned to Morocco. For a short while
(1908-1909) stamps were also issued for the town of Tetuan. The small Spanish
territory of IFNI is an enclave within Morocco. In 1958 the entire area (except
for Ifni, which was surrendered in 1969) became an integral part of MOROCCO.
Stamp issuing between 1903-1955.
