    Virgen de Africa
    Entré para ver la imagen de la patrona de la ciudad. Es de madera oscura y es una talla gótica del SXV. Regalada por Enrique el navegante a la ciudad. Es alcaldesa perpétua de Ceuta. Hace años a los bautizados en esta iglesia se les ponía bajo el manto de la virgen (a mí me pusieron junto con mis padrinos). En la actualidad desconozco si se seguirá haciendo...

    Procesiones católicas andaluzas-españolas en Ceuta (frontera con Marruecos)

    The patron saint of the city of Ceuta
    . Fairly uninteresting outside, just a rather ordinary church painted pink and white. Although I suppose that for a Brit, a pink-painted church is slightly of interest! However inside it is overwhelming with the gold-leaf decorations pulling your eyes into the altar and the statue of Our Lady of Africa, the patron saint of the town of Ceuta, and the origin of the girl's name "Africa" which you hear here as mothers call their toddlers to them in the park. .

As in other Ceuta sites, the Parroquia de Santa Maria de Africa is not overly large, but it is very much worth a look inside for traditional grandeur. The location is so close to the fort that this is a must see on a walking tour of Ceuta. Very beautiful stained glass windows.

This lovely little church is just to one side of the Plaza de Africa, On the outside the building does not look like much but take the time to go inside and you will see a very beautiful little church. The church is dedicated to the patron saint of the city - the Virgin of Africa - whose statue is above the alter. The interior of the building dates from the first half of the 18th Century, however the exterior of the building was been modified in the 19th and 20th centuries.
