What to see One of the city's main symbols is its defensive walls, known as the Murallas Reales, which is its most important military construction. The Mediterranean Maritime Park is an example of its more modern architecture. This is a space designed for tranquillity by César Manrique which combines nature, the sea and recreation, and is right beside the historic centre. The city revolves around the square of Nuestra Señora de África. In the surrounding area you can visit the shrine of Nuestra Señora de África, the Town Hall, the Comandancia General (the headquarters of the military command) and the cathedral, which stands on the site of an old Muslim mosque.  It has a series of interesting viewing points –Monte Hacho is among the best known, and offers panoramic views of the port and the bay. Nearby you'll find the castle, the Desnarigado Museum and the shrine of San Antonio. Gastronomy An exotic combination of Spanish and Arab cuisine. You'll be able to try dishes like couscous, pastela and meat and vegetable stews prepared in the traditional style of the Maghreb, in addition to its famous 'tapas' and particularly the 'pescaíto frito' (fresh fried fish). Active tourism Fishing, sailing, rowing… and scuba-diving. The seabed is a paradise thanks to the confluence of the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
