Ceuta: Exploring Ceuta Town

The actual town of Ceuta sits on a narrow neck connecting the peninsula with mainland, right past the Royal Walls of Ceuta. A grid of streets criss-crosses the tiny area. But there are plenty of attractions – the Cathedral of Ceuta (built on top of a mosque built on top of old Christian church built on top of a Phoenician temple), Plaza de Africa, sculpture of Calypso of Ceuta, ancient Arab Baths, and the House of Dragons. The town is full of shops where mainland tourists and Moroccans alike go nuts on duty free shopping.
