Plaza de Africa, 51001 Ceuta, Spain

Reviewed 17 April 2012

Plaza de Africa is a welcome oasis of greenery and calm. The garden and are are meticulously looked after and the paved areas seem to be washed down daily. A perfect place to sit for a while or explore the Royal walls or cathedral.

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.

Not much else to say than it is a square with trees and a statue. Absolutely not worth a visit. Just stroll through if you happen to be there.

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.

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;)))

This is a pleasant small square. we walked here from the port, where we arrived on a cruise ship. Close to the other main sights of Ceuta.

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.

Ceuta is a city with strong Moroccan influences and some beautiful architecture. It's easy to walk to the Plaza de Africa and it makes for a nice area to sit close to the ocean in a pleasant garden setting. It's close to the ocean and...More
