Area: 13 km²
Population: 66,411
Capital: Melilla

The mixture of the centuries-old walls of Melilla’s citadel and the Art Nouveau architecture of its boulevards is a clear example of the variety that is the predominant note in this city, situated on the northern coast of Africa.  A mixture that can also be seen in its cuisine, ranging from tapas washed down with cold beer to Arab dishes, as well as the typical pincho melillense (served with mint tea).
Another attraction of Melilla is its shopping district, akin to an African bazaar where, as in Ceuta, prices tend to be lower than on the mainland, because many products are tax free.  Santiago Chapel is a must for those who want to photograph the only Gothic-style building on the entire continent of Africa.
