Mellila (Tamelilt in Berber meaning "the white one") is an autonomous city of Spain located on the Mediterranean, on the north coast in North Africa. It was regarded as a part of Málaga province prior to March 14, 1995, when the city's Statute of Autonomy was passed.

Melilla was a free port before Spain joined the European Union.

Its population consists of Christians, Muslims (chiefly Berber), and small minorities of Jews and Hindus. Both Spanish and Tarifit-Berber are widely spoken.

Spanish is the official language, while there are many calls to recognize Berber as well.
