Barcelona Guide

The Spanish city of Barcelona is located in the autonomous region of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city after Madrid. Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in the world and lies on the coast between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos. It is also bordered to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) where many medieval buildings can be found. The city's best known landmark is the still unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia which has been under construction since 1882. In addition to its buoyant tourist industry, the city is also a popular destination for many trade fairs and exhibitions and is also a major centre for sport, fashion, science and the arts.

Barcelona's port has three terminals and is a popular departure port for ferries to Mallorca, Genoa, Ibiza and Morocco (Tangier Med). The port also accommodates many cruise ships sailing the Mediterranean Sea. The port's piers used by ferries are located quite close to the city centre.


Nador Guide

Nador is a Moroccan city that is located in the Rif region of north east Morocco with the city's port lying on the Bhar Amezzyan Lagoon. It is believed Nador was founded by the Berber Civilisation, and then later ruled by the Phoenicians, the Romans and then the Arabs. It is not certain where the city derives its name. Some think the name of the city may have originated from the name ‘Has Nador’ which is a small settlement near the lagoon. Others, however, think it may have originated from the Arabic word “nadar’ which means sight and that matches more as Nador is a strategic point of observation with Spain. Either way, the city has been popular with most of the Moroccan Kings, King Omar ibn Idriss II in particular and the Almoravide King Youssef ibn Tachfin.

Nador was known as a centre of smuggling cheap Spanish and Chinese duty-free goods. Currently the smuggling has declined but takes place and seems to competes with a smuggling route from Algeria. Many used consumer goods from Europe and China also find their way to Morocco and Africa via Melilla and Nador, both legally and illegally.

Ferry services from Nador depart to Almeria and Motril in Spain and Sete in France.
