About Melilla

Melilla, on the Mediterranean coast of Morocco, was originally a Phoenician settlement and has throughout history seen Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Vandal and Carthaginian rule. Melilla was conquered by Spain in 1492 and has been under Spanish administration ever since; this is reflected in the city's typically Andalusian character. The port of Melilla has become an important port for trade and transportation between North Africa and Spain.

The fortified Melilla old town, Melilla la Vieja, is surrounded by defensive walls and has changed little since the 16th Century. Some other interesting sights to see in Melilla include the Plaza de EspaƱa square, which is surrounded by important local buildings, and the Zoruah Synagogue. Melilla also has a variety of museums to visit, including the Museum of Archaeology and History and the Military History Museum. Melilla is approximately 14 kilometres north of Nador; Nador is accessible from Melilla by train.

    only small frustrations
    • I enjoyed my trip on the large ferry between malaga and melilla. I do wish that the cafeteria had been open prior to arrival in melilla. The schedule on the notice board said it would be so I arrived in melilla hungry. I also wish that I had been aware of the fast ferry back to malaga. It's arrival would have fit my airline connection to britan far better and I do not think thta it was shown as an option when a booked on line in late march. I only became aware of it a day before I sailed to malaga as I watched it leave the melilla harbor. I suppose I should have gone to your office then and asked to change my booking and I suspect that you would have said ok.

    functional journey
    • check in was easy and quick, the boat was a bit run down though, the seats were broken and ripped, the TV was blaring and there was no quiet area, even in the seating section (as that had a TV too). the announcer had a very strong spanish accent so when she spoke in english it was impossible to understand what she was saying, therefore i missed the canteen closing times and ended up eating a sandwich from the bar, which was below par, the ham was too fatty and thickly cut and a little over priced. everyone was pleasant though and the journey was fine otherwise. we departed & arrived very punctually, and the journey was very smooth.

    Comfortable Cruising
    • Travelling on the overnight ferry allowed us to make the most of our day in Malaga and have an evening meal before boarding what proved to be a very comfortable ferry. We are a family of two adults and two sons aged 11 and 13. The cabin was very comfortable and all though we did not eat on the ferry all facilities were very welcoming. If anything, we docked in Melilla too early as we would have enjoyed having breakfast on board!
