General Information

Located in North Africa and bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, Melilla is a tiny city of about 12 km2 and about 85,000 inhabitants. Perhaps its most outstanding feature is its multiculturalism, since Christians, Muslims, Jews and a small community of Hindus have been living here for centuries.

Below, we recommend a series of brochures made by the office of tourism of the Autonomous City of Melilla, which hopefully help you to make your visit as pleasant and complete as possible

Gastronomic recommendations

In Melilla, the "tapeo" is part of the identity of our gastronomy.
Each consumption includes a tapa to choose from a large number of possibilities and flavors.
Fish and seafood are of good quality and, compared to the Peninsula, much cheaper.
You can also try the typical food of Morocco (noodles, couscous, pastela, etc.) that do not leave indifferent even the most exquisite palates.
A "must" are the pinchitos, a classic of our land. Special mention deserve those of Casa Sadia where, in addition, you can taste all kinds of Arab specialties among which are all the above mentioned.

Good options to eat fish are Juanito de la Barca, Castelar, the Chiringuito de la Amistad or Paco Benítez.
If you want elaborate options where fusion reigns, La Cala, Almoraima or La Traviata are good choices.
Another must on our culinary route is the Moorish tea in any of the cafes in the city. Los Arcos is one of the great classics of the city, in the heart of downtown. If you want a tea shop in the purest Arab style, perfectly themed, we suggest Nazarí.
