A welcome oasis of shade and rest in the middle of Ceuta town centre. The sight and sound of the fountain gurgling and splashing was really welcome.

There is not much to see but it gives you a nice small town square feeling. Not commercial, no wau-architecture, no mega events. Just a small place for free.

I wouldn't specifically travel here but it's nice to see along a days walk. Plus you can emphasize to all your friends that you actually went to Africa.

Take a beer, relax, watch people wandering. A very quiet place for quiet minded people. Not far from shopping centers if you wish to send accompanying person and rest;)))

A small but nice area. You find there two beautiful churches alightened at nightime. From there you can start to explore downtown. The tourist information is nearby.
