Arab-Arab-Andalusian gastronomic fusion
Melilla’s cuisine, which is very similar to that of Ceuta, is an amalgam of flavours and smells, the result of the mixing various cultural influences that have produced a fusion, mainly between the various culinary traditions of Andalusia and Morocco. Mediterranean, European and African dishes with fish and seafood from the coast take centre stage.
Cuisine with Moorish influences
In the restaurant area of the Parador de Melilla, while you enjoy privileged views of the autonomous city and the Mediterranean Sea, you’ll discover cuisine rich in local products. You’ll try Moorish kebabs, spiced chicken cakes, marinated dogfish, chicken tajine with olives and prunes and spices, comforting harira soup, tash-nif (a Moorish cake) stuffed with beef kefta and mint and couscous ice cream.

Sun and beach in the heart of the Rif region
Melilla is an outstanding destination for the practice of water sports and outdoor activities, and its marina is a favourite with spear fishing enthusiasts. With an area of twelve square kilometres, the Autonomous City has a high concentration of modernist buildings, including the building of La Reconquista and the Casa Melul. The Parador de Melilla is located next to part of the Conjunto Histórico-Artístico de Melilla La Vieja, a superb medieval fortress that juts out into the Mediterranean.
