A Spanish touch on Moroccan territory is what the city of Ceuta has in store for you.
This city, which has been called the "Gateway to Europe", along with Tangier and Tetouan, was for a long time the cause of an interminable Spanish-Moroccan conflict.
It was finally won by Spain although it is on Moroccan soil. Ceuta la Métisse is a half-Moroccan half-European city and this is what makes it so charming.
When you walk there, you hear a mixture of Moroccan and Spanish dialects, languages merge, religions mix and this gives the most beautiful of blends: a mixture called Ceuta.
The city has so much to offer its visitors thanks to its diverse Roman, Christian, Latin and Muslim origins.
Each of its civilisations has left its mark, making Ceuta a true ethnic and religious patchwork.
Many tourists come to Ceuta for shopping, as you can find everything there and at prices that beat all of the competition.
But to limit Ceuta to shopping and bargains would not do it justice, as it has so much to offer.
Tour operators are turning more and more to Ceuta and nowadays there are many attractive travel options: scuba diving in Ceuta, cultural holidays, discovery holidays of Ceuta and its coastline, cruises in Ceuta, etc.
But even if you prefer to go on an adventurous trip, without a pre-established programme, you certainly won't get bored in Ceuta. You will have a wealth of activities and plenty of sights to visit.
