Parque Marítimo del Mediterráneo

Parque Marítimo del Mediterráneo is a man-made leisure facility in the autonomous Spanish city of Ceuta.  Ceuta borders Morocco and is a natural harbour on a spit of land which has the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. This makes for dangerous swimming conditions, hence this park! The salt water pools are filtered directly from the sea and it’s open during the summer months. The park also houses an casino, sun lounging areas, a concert area, gardens and eating facilities. It is a beautifully designed facility and was commissioned to César Manrique, the architect and artist.
