Melilla Guide

The Spanish administered city of Melilla is located on the north west African coast and shares a border with Morocco. The city lies across the sea from the Spanish provinces of Granada and Almeria and is next to the Alboran Sea. With an area of around 12 sq. km it is one of two permanently inhabited Spanish administered cities on the continent of Africa, the other being Ceuta. The closest city in Morocco to Melilla is Nador and the Moroccan settlement of Beni Ansar lies immediately to the south. Radiating out in a semicircle around the beach and port of Melilla is the city itself and is on the eastern side of the peninsular of Cape Tres Forcas, at the bottom of Mount Gurugu and at the mouth of the Rio de Oro.

The city's port offers passenger ferry connections to Almeria and Malaga on the Spanish mainland. The passenger and cargo route between Europe and Morocco use the ferry links to Melilla. As a result, the port and associated business form an important source of income for the city.


Almeria Guide

The Spanish city of Almeria is located in the south east of the country and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. The Andalusian city is a major destination along the region's coast which is characterised by virgin beaches and a semi desert ecosystem inland. The city used to be one of the most important ports in the Caliphate of Cordoba and its narrow streets are filled with whitewashed buildings, a citadel and cathedral. In addition to history and culture, the city offers visitors beaches, mountains and coastal nature reserves and a gastronomy that will make for a memorable visit.

A popular attraction in the city is its cathedral which looms large over the heart of the ancient city. The cathedral looks more like a fortress than a place or worship thanks to its towers and thick walls and its design is in reaction to the frequent Berber pirate attacks that the city endured in the past. Also located close by is the Convent of Purasand and the Episcopal Palace.

The port of Almería has a marina with moorings for pleasure boats and normally provides connections to Ghazaouet (Algeria), Oran (Algeria), Nador (Morocco) and Melilla.
