Ceuta (English: /ˈsjtə/, English: /ˈstə/, Spanish: [ˈθeuta]; ; Arabic: سبتة) is an Spanish autonomous city on the north coast of Africa, separated by from Cadiz province on the Spanish mainland by the Strait of Gibraltar and sharing a land border with M'diq-Fnideq Prefecture in the Kingdom of Morocco. It lies along the boundary between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and is one of nine populated Spanish territories in Africa and, along with Melilla, one of two populated territories on mainland Africa. It was part of Cádiz province until 14 March 1995 when both Ceuta and Melilla's Statutes of Autonomy were passed, the latter having been part of Málaga province.
Ceuta, like Melilla and the Canary Islands, was a free port before Spain joined the European Union. Its population consists of Christians, Muslims and small minorities of Sephardic Jews and ethnic Sindhi Hindus.
Spanish is the official language, while Darija Arabic is also spoken by 40–50% of the population, which is of Moroccan origin.
The name Abyla has been said to have been a Punic name ("Lofty Mountain" or "Mountain of God") for Jebel Musa, the southern Pillar of Hercules. In fact, it seems that the name of the mountain was actually Habenna (, , "Stone" or "Stele") or ʾAbin-ḥīq (, , "Rock of the Bay"), in reference to the nearby Bay of Benzú. The name was hellenized variously as Ápini (), Abýla (), Abýlē (), Ablýx (), and Abílē Stḗlē (, "Pillar of Abyla") and in Latin as Mount Abyla () or the Pillar of Abyla ().
The settlement below Jebel Musa was later renamed for the seven hills around the site, collectively referred to as the "Seven Brothers" (; Latin: Septem Fratres). In particular, the Roman stronghold at the site took the name "Fort at the Seven Brothers" (). This was gradually shortened to Septem ( Sépton) or, occasionally, Septum or Septa.

- Ceuta: The city, located in the north of the African continent just 30 kilometers from Tarifa and 27 from Algeciras, was Carthaginian, Roman and Muslim; in this period, Abderramán III fortified it and suffered the disputes of Almorávides and Almohades. Conquered in 1415 by the Portuguese infants, when Portugal separates from the crown of Spain, to which it belonged in the reign of Philip II (1640), Ceuta was Spanish. In the following centuries it continued to be a stronghold and port of the first magnitude in the Strait of Gibraltar in the continuous wars of the Mediterranean and North Africa. As a place of Spanish sovereignty, it did not go to the Moroccan administration at the end of the Moroccan protectorate in the 1950s. Today it is one of the two autonomous cities along with Melilla, military garrison, free port and shopping center. Its past history of Portuguese roots leaves its mark on its shield and the architecture of the walls, bastions and the moat of San Felipe. The Cathedral is its most precious monument since the fifteenth century in which it was consecrated, although for various vicissitudes it has been rebuilt; Also interesting are the San Francisco church, located in the Plaza de los Reyes and the Casa Grande.
There is a regular ferry service between Algeciras and Ceuta, which allows the passage of goods, vehicles and people, who visit the city in summer every day. It is also a must for many Maghreb immigrants who work in Europe, when they return to their holiday land and use this maritime environment.
