What to see near the port of Nador
As previously mentioned, the port of Beni Ensar is located a short distance from Melilla, an autonomous city belonging to Spain. Before reaching Nador (which does not offer much from a historical-artistic point of view), we suggest a visit to both the old and the new city.
The most important monument of Melilla La Vieja is certainly its fortress: built by the Spaniards at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it is accessed through the Puerta de la Marina, near which there is a bronze statue of Generalísimo Francisco Franco. Other noteworthy places in the historic center are the seventeenth-century Iglesia de la Purísima Concepción, in Baroque style; the Convent Caves, dug by the Phoenicians and used as a refuge during sieges; the Museo Etnográfico de las Culturas Amazigh y Sefardi, the Museo de Historia and the military museum.
As for the new city of Melilla, its center is represented by Plaza de España, overlooked by striking buildings such as the headquarters of the Banco de España, the Casino Militar and the Palacio de la Asamblea. Finally, you cannot miss a walk in the Parque Hernández and a visit to the Fundación Gaselec.
