Plenty of excursions to Morocco are available from Algeciras. 

The medina of Tetouan and its unique network of shaded alleyways, is a UNESCO-listed World Heritage Site.

Its large mellah (Jewish quarter) was called Little Jerusalem. It is the most lively area after nightfall. Here, the souks are well separated, each trade occupying a precise perimeter. Tarafin street, which is lined with jewellery shops, leads to Hassan II square and the Royal Palace, a fine example of Hispano-Mauresque architecture.

To the west, on the modern side, the new town, El Ensanche, can be found. Its small buildings of five storeys maximum, with shops on the ground floor, were built under Spanish protectorate.

The tangier medina has always fascinated artists. Eugène Delacroix, Henri Matisse, Paul Bowles, Tennessee Williams, Jean Genet… the list is endless. All have fallen for the charm of Petit Socco Square and its cafés, especially the famous Tingis, despite the nefarious reputation acquired during the period when casinos and dance halls abounded.

The old Mendoub Palace, built in 1929, situated to the North of the medina, is now a mansion for foreign VIPs. The museum of the old American Legation is in the Southern extremity. Paintings are on display and one room is dedicated to the American writer Paul Bowles. You should leave the medina by Grand Socco Square, a lively spot in the evening, and enter the new town.

You can enjoy a pleasant walk in the Mendoubia Park situated north of Grand Socco Square. A giant banyan tree and a dragon tree, alleged to be 800 years old, highlight the visit. Take rue de la Liberté, a shopping thoroughfare, to the Place de France which is the heart of the modern town. There you will find the celebrated Grand Café de Paris and the El Minzah Hotel which both were haunts of the famous names of arts and literature of the 19th and early 20th centuries. This spot is still very fashionable. You will have an amazing view of the medina and the port and bay of Tangier from Faro Square with its canons. The mythical Hafa café overlooks the Strait of Gibraltar

Ceuta is a cosmopolitan and modern city, which forms the border between the European Union and the neighbouring country of Morocco.. Welcome to an ideal place to live, spend holidays or simply visit for the weekend. A city in which to relax, soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches, or at the immense solarium located in the Maritime Park of the Mediterranean.

A place to stroll through lovely woods on foot or bicycle, to go and eat “tapas” enjoying the city’s magnificent cuisine or to enjoy the local nightlife at the “Fishing Village” the meeting point for the youth.
