According to historical official sources, Ceuta’s existence was noticed before the 5th century BC, when this region was populated by Carthaginians and it represented an important trade and military point. The Romans took their place after a few centuries, then the Vandals, the Visigoths, the Greeks and the Arabs, leaving a lush culture and impressive traces behind.
