Plaza de España

Landmark in Melilla

Several fine examples of the city's heritage are on the Plaza de España, including Nieto’s Casino Militar, and the Banco de España. With its central fountain, the Plaza is a pleasant place to sit. At the centre is an art-deco military monument to campaigns in Morocco.

In the distance towards the sea you can spot Melilla’s most striking contemporary building, the new courthouse, which looks like a flying saucer landed on the roof (closed to visitors).
