Ceuta is an autonomous Spanish town on the North African coastline of Morocco. Located on a peninsula jutting out into the Mediterranean, Cueta offers a sublime blend of fine architecture, intriguing museums, excellent cuisine and stunning natural landscapes.
The city’s museums deserve a visit and include the Museo de la Basilica Tardorromana and the Military Museum of the Legion, which was established in 1940 to celebrate the Spanish Legion. The Parque Marítimo del Mediterráneo is a popular leisure complex consisting of three artificial lakes of salt water, filtered directly from the sea.
A relaxed town of well-kept plazas and tapas bars, the city is especially beautiful at night, as a skyline of stylishly lit buildings and divine palm trees fill the view.
The Medina of Tétouan
Across the border in Morocco is a well-preserved 8th century city, with charming sun-bleached houses climbing up the hillside, backed by the majestic Rif Mountains and a few kilometres from the sea. Tétouan, hosts one of the smallest medinas in Morocco and is fairly untouched by tourists.
