Ceuta in detail



Euros are used for all transactions in Ceuta. ATMs are plentiful; outside banking hours, you can change money at the more expensive hotels. There are informal moneychangers on both sides of the border, although it’s technically illegal to take dirhams out of Morocco.


To phone Ceuta from outside Spain, dial 0034.


Remember that Ceuta is one hour ahead of Morocco (two during daylight saving time), and that most businesses will be closed on Sunday.

Tourist Information

Ceuta’s history is outlined by the ruta monumenta, a series of excellent information boards in English and Spanish outside key buildings and monuments.

The main tourist office is friendly and efficient, with good maps and brochures. The kiosk at Plaza de Africa is a satellite of the main tourist office.
