Ceuta is an odd sort of place, an enclave of provincial Spain, an African equivalent of Great Britain's Gibraltar. However, unlike Gibraltar, Ceuta has not established itself as a minor tourist attraction. Instead, it gives the impression that it would like to be a Mediterranean Hong Kong: it has the right sort of location, between two continents, developed Europe and upcoming Africa. But the Gibraltar-Spain frontier was opened in 1985, and in many ways Ceuta has been sidelined into becoming a passenger transit port. The chaotic Ceuta-Fnideq frontier may well be your first or last point of contact with Morocco.
