Why is Tarifa called Tarifa?

Its name comes from Tarif Ibn Malluk, a Berber chief who accompanied Tarik ben Zayad, the Arab leader who defeated Don Rodrigo in the Battle of La Janda (711). Several centuries of Moslem occupation left their mark on the town. The town was captured from the Moslems in 1292 by Sancho IV of Castile, known as the Brave.
