There is not much to see but it gives you a nice small town square feeling. Not commercial, no wau-architecture, no mega events. Just a small place for free.

I wouldn't specifically travel here but it's nice to see along a days walk. Plus you can emphasize to all your friends that you actually went to Africa.

Take a beer, relax, watch people wandering. A very quiet place for quiet minded people. Not far from shopping centers if you wish to send accompanying person and rest;)))

A small but nice area. You find there two beautiful churches alightened at nightime. From there you can start to explore downtown. The tourist information is nearby.

Ceuta is a city with strong Moroccan influences and some beautiful architecture. It's easy to walk to the Plaza de Africa and it makes for a nice area to sit close to the ocean in a pleasant garden setting. It's close to the ocean and...More

Main square in Ceuta with a well-maintained garden in the middle with some benches to have a rest during a walk through the center of the town.

The plaza was very close to our hotel in Ceuta. A stroll around it is a pleasant experience, but it's not worth going out of your way to visit.
