A stroll through the Zona del Real

A walk through "the Real"

The Barrio del Real is a planned neighbourhood in the form of a grid similar to those that were built in other Spanish cities during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Its early denizens were of modest means, but even so, the architecture here shows the stylish touches of the Modernismo the city is known for. Particularly notable buildings include the Mercado del Real marketplace, designed by Enrique Nieto, and the onetime Cine Español (Spanish Cinema), now retired from the movie business. Not far from there, taking the street toward the Beni Enzar border, you'll find the Officers' Residence of the Melilla Land Army, designed in neo-Plateresque style by Mariano del Pozo in 1944.
