In Ceuta there is an architectural development facing the Mediterranean Sea, whose surprising degree of peace and harmony is bound to please. This is the Mediterranean Maritime Park. Canary Islands artist César Manrique created this park whose natural elements, sea water, rocks and buildings blend with the town’s historic centre.

Here the sound of the sea and the light of the Mediterranean play a special role. The best way to experience this place is to come and enjoy everything it has to offer. Inside you will find waterfalls that glitter all day long, lakes, palm trees and gardens, that serve as the stage for shows, concerts, dance events and leisure activities.

Discover the small island in the central lake – here you will find a botanical garden with immensely interesting species. In the evening, you can also go on boat rides on these artificial lakes, looking out at Ceuta’s nocturnal townscape.

The little ones can play and have fun at the children’s games area. Furthermore, the park has bars and restaurants, a casino, a disco in the main building and a castle inspired in city’s old defensive walls. All in all, this is a place where people of all ages can have a good time, at any time of year.
