We would have never visited Ceuta if not for the fact that this was a scheduled port of call on our cruise. Pretty impressive stronghold. What was more interesting was that inside the court yard was their annual medieval festival. This was a pretty interesting...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.

This is the most interesting site to visit. There is quite a wealth of information in the shape of boards. A good lesson in history of development of fortifications, weapons and tactics.
