From the terraces of the Melilla Parador you will have the best views to the Ciudadela or Pueblo (walled city) and the long stretches of beaches surrounding it.
Rising up over a small valley in the upper part of the Lobera park, this building bathes in the North African sun while enjoying its quiet
location. This Parador has a private garden as well as a refreshing swimming
The cooking in Melilla has strong Andalusian influences combined with the Arabic culture. Being a coastal area, fish and shellfish feature strongly on the local cuisine. The "rape Estopinan" (anglerfish) and fried vegetable salad with Melilla salted fish must be tasted.
As well as the local cooking there is a gluten free menu.
In Melilla you should not miss visiting the Ciudadela which was first erected in the fifteenth century, the Mosque and the Synagogue, the Purisima
Conception Church, the City Museum, and the Rostrogordo pine forests.
The Museum Amazigh has exhibitions of neolithic ceramics and a variety of jewellery.
There are two big fiestas during the year: The Virgin of Victoria on September 8th, and Pedro Estopinan who founded the city, on September 17th.

small markets of the city, such as the Poligono (Arab neighbourhood), the
Mercadillo del Real, and the Mercadillo barrio Bateria Jota.

|We visited Melilla over Easter as an unusual way to enter Morocco. We were very happy with the Parador. The room was up to the usual standard we expect from Paradors and had a fantastic view over the city and harbour. The restaurant food was excellent and featured interesting local specialities. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Melilla itself was pretty well closed due to the Easter holidays but we did see a few religious processions that were fascinating. Going to Morocco via this route was very successful and we would recommend the experience.|

|We went here as an experiment, Melilla that is, knowing that whatever else we found the Parador would not dissapoint. It didn't. Excellent food, service pool etc.... When you are on holiday and going back to your hotel either in the evening or during the day and it feels like home is no better priase for any hotel...|
