This is the most interesting site to visit. There is quite a wealth of information in the shape of boards. A good lesson in history of development of fortifications, weapons and tactics.

I was there with my family yesterday. As other reviewers suggested we went just before sunset so we can see it through light and after they turn on the lights. The place is well maintained but there isn't much to see. We ve been to many historic places and this was the least interesting. Honestly i wasn't impressed by the... More

We visited the place by night .. its very nicely lighted.. and the best suggestion- take a kayak and do the tour in the canal.. water is clear, you can see fishes as well and it's a nice start for an autumn morning

The fortress is quite enormous, probably in line with those in Malaga Spain. It is extremely well preserved and quite interesting. If you enter in on one side you can exit the opposite and complete a loop of the downtown and fortress. After walking it with surprisingly few people, there are pubs and very reasonable sandwich shops to visit. Bar... More

We saw this fort by night. The lighting was very effective. It is massive and has been very well restored.

We were really lucky that they were open on New year's Day, just about the only thing that was! The moat even has water in it. I advise going at sunset; really atmospheric.

This was the borderline of ancient Ceuta. The Royal Moat has been navigable since the early of the Portuguese rule. The oldest fortresses, the Mallorquines, Bandera and Coraza Alta y su Caballero Fortress is on the east side. The most modern construction is to the west of the moat. St. Peter’s Fortress with the Plaza de Santiago, the Valencian Front... More

This is the most obvious must see in a very special off the beat and track city of Cueta. With the moat, huge harbour in the back ground, high walls, cannon turrets, stone walls, all free to walk around with excellent signage and information boards, most in English. Cueta is a wonderful walking city and the fort is central to... More

A lovely place to wander around for a hour or so and get a real feel for its history. Some great photo moments and views for miles. You could even see Gibraltar in the distance. Really a beautiful place to visit whilst in Ceuta.

Very cool place, beautiful view(s) of Ceuta and the Rock of Gibraltar. A lot of history going on there as well, so you can learn a lot about how Ceuta was formed/established, and how it was defended using this 'castle'
