A must-see if you travel to Ceuta (which you should try to do - it’s great!) Free to enter and explore the high fortress walls. Find the galllery with an attractive wall frieze at it’s entrance.

This is a must place to visit while in Ceuta. Huge walls of fortress, often some kinds of music events inside. Visits near the sunset give the best feeling

Beautiful city fortification that is free to visit. It's an interesting piece of history. I would recommend a guided tour or a boat tour to make the most of it.

Loved just stopping and looking at the calm waters with kayakers and boaters passing through, but make sure you walk in between the walls on the west side- there is an open door with a cannon inside, and if you walk in, there is a...More

As you depart the ship you see these amazing walls that form the entrance to the city. A boat trip around the moat is available.

Puede ir sin ningún problema. No hay ascensor, pero no es necesario, apenas hay que subir escalones y hay rampas de acceso. Un saludo y disfrútelo.
