Located on the southernmost coast of Spain‘s Andalucia, the city of Tarifa dates back to Roman times, later given its name after the attack of Tarif Ibn Malik, a Berber military commander. The city’s name has a more storied history than just the attack by its namesake: Some theories suggest that it is the origin of the word “tariff” as it was the first place in history to charge merchants a fee for use of its docks.
