The Tingitana Peninsula, also known as the Tangier Peninsula, is a small peninsula in northwest Africa, which together with the Iberian Peninsula, southernmost part of mainland Spain, forms the Strait of Gibraltar, the Atlantic Ocean boundary with the Mediterranean Sea. The principal cities are Tangier and Ceuta. Administratively, the peninsula belongs to the Moroccan prefectures of Tangier-Asilah Morocco, Fahs Anjra, M'Diq-Fnideq and Tetuan, and the Spanish autonomous city of Ceuta. Historically it belonged to the province of Mauritania Tingitana.[1]
