Museo de la Basílica Tardorromana

Calle Queipo de Llano, 51001 Ceuta, Spain

Archaeology buffs must see the recently uncovered 4th-century catacombs of the Basílica Tardorromana. These remains of early Christianity are considered unique finds in the western region of North Africa. Elsewhere in the museum, carvings of timber and marble are linked to a 14th-century Andalucian university, Madrasa al-Yadida de Ceuta. Another section of the exhibition details historic fish-salting factories from the Roman era—one of the earliest trade activities of the pre-Christian period.
