For centuries disputed by the Spanish, Moroccans and Portuguese, Ceuta is now administratively an autonomous Spanish city in North African territory.
In its soul, it is a fascinating mixture of cultures and populations, a Spain with Moroccan touches. Geographically, it is the northern tip of Africa, always looking towards Gibraltar.
The old town stretches across a peninsula that juts out into the Mediterranean Sea and is full of places ideal for a relaxing break among the museums and monuments that tell the special story of this strategic outpost. When the heat becomes too much, you can cool off with a swim in the sea or in the salt water of the artificial lakes in the maritime park.
As the sun sets, the city's modern buildings take on a pastel hue and it is not difficult to let your thoughts wander to distant and mysterious lands.
