The city of Nador is located in the north east Rif region of Morocco on the Mediterranean Sea coast. It is also a port on the Bhar Amezzyan Lagoon which has made it an important trading centre for fish, fruit and livestock. Around 10 km to the north of Nador is the Spanish city of Melilla. The city has been ruled by a number of different civilisations during its history. The city is believed to have been founded by the Berber Civilisation and then ruled by the Phoenicians, the Romans and the Arabs. The city's name is believed to derive from the name "Has Nador" which is a small settlement near the lagoon. The city is a popular meeting place for expatriate Moroccans who go to the city to meet their relatives and is therefore an important source of income for the city. The city does not have many sights of particular interest, there are no pretty little ports or beach side restaurants, but it is still a popular destination for tourists who visit Nador to take in its traditional Riffian atmosphere.
Ferry services from Nador depart to Almeria and Motril in Spain and Sete in France.
The Spanish city of Barcelona lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast, between the mouths of the River Llobregat and River Besos and is also bordered to the west by the Serra Collserola mountain range. The city is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and is the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. The city's origins date back to when it was founded as a Roman city and then in the Middle Ages it became the capital of the County of Barcelona. Today, the city is a very popular tourist destination and cultural centre and is particularly well known for the architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner, which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
There are many things to do and see in Barcelona including the National Museum of Art of Catalonia which contains a collection of Romanesque art while the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art has a collection on post 1945 Catalan and Spanish art. Also in the city the Fundació Joan Miró, Picasso Museum and Fundació Antoni Tàpies hold important collections of these world famous artists, as well as Can Framis Museum, which focuses on post 1960 Catalan Art owned by Fundació Vila Casas.
