At this station the train reaches all the way to the Plaça Tetuan. On the first days of February 1860, and within the context of the African War, the battle for Tetuan took place in which the Moroccan forces fought against the Spanish army, which at the time were led by General Leopoldo O’Donnell, who was able to take the city with the help of Joam Prim, who commanded the Catalan volunteers. With this victory, O’Donnell consolidated his prestige for which he was granted the duchy of Tetuan. When the Treaty of Wad-Ras was signed with the sultan of Morocco, Spain received the transfer agreement of Tetuan, which became the capital of the Spanish protectorate in Marocco until independence in 1956.< br/> Its name derives from the Berber word Tittawen, meaning “eyes”, although it is also known as “The White Dove”.
