Across the Straits of Gibraltar, Ceuta Spain

Ceuta is one of two small spanish enclaves in Morocco and is situated on the opposite side of the Straits of Gibraltar from Aljaciras. The town sits on a peninsula with water on two sides. It has a couple of interesting sites like the Arabic baths and fortifications and some buildings with unique architecture, but it is the gardens and statues on the main promenade that makes Ceuta so charming. It is a great way to enter Africa and is convenient to move on from here to other destinations in Morocco. We crossed through the border here on route to the Rift Mountain town of Chefchouen about 1.5 hours away.
