Melilla Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 116 photos

The city where all the travelers should discover!

Melilla, 4 cultures, and this is the place where everybody wants to feel but nobody knows where it is, part of the population is christian, part muslim, and some hindi and hebrew, also gipsies, chinese, pakistanian and black african living there.
Surprise means the most cosmopolitan city.
Part of my family was living there and my great grandfather has a street dedicated to hismemory and heritage.

A preserved fortress

Like Malta or Minorca, Melilla has a big bastion to protect all the attacks from the north african tribus.
Melilla was a Territory of the Hispaniarum provintia during the roman empire, and is the only part which still belong to Spain, as other region of Spain

    Oye...Muy buena página, nadie piensa en ir a Melilla actualmente, bueno yo lo he hecho porque mi padre hizo la mili allí, hace mil años, pero me parece una posibilidad para visitarla en septiembre, gracias por fomentarme el interés....

    You have created an excellent Melilla page. It is a pity that so many people forget about Melilla when choosing a holiday destination. If only they saw your page! I have been to Melilla!
