An imposing 1940s building presiding over the Plaza de España, also the work of the famed and ubiquitous Enrique Nieto. For decades the city hall was of course the seat of the city government, until in 1995 Melilla officially became an autonomous city and so it thereupon became the seat of the Melilla Assembly. The structure is neo-Mudejar in style (Mudejar referring to Moorish-influenced Medieval architecture), with two main towers in Arab style akin to little minarets. Between them the clock stands out; during the Christmas holidays it plays different melodies. The building's interior is heavily adorned, in particular the Hall of Columns and the Gilded Salon, a veritable design gem. Just next door to this building is the Military Casino, notable for its sober classical style.
