King Juan Carlos of Spain is to pay a controversial visit to two Spanish-held enclaves on the tip of North Africa for the first time in his 32-year reign. Morocco considers the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla to be occupied Moroccan territory and recalled its ambassador to Spain in protest at the visit

Cheering crowds waving the Spanish flag greeted King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia in Ceuta, the first stop in a two-day visit to the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla that in its planning stage prompted Morocco to recall its ambassador to Spain last week..... - article

Melilla was conquered in 1497 by the 3rd Duke lof Medina Sidonia and became part of the crown of Castille.

Neither city was ever Maroccan as Marocco didn´t exsist yet, the belonged to the Kingdom of Fez.
No ,it was during role of Al-andalus,Al-moravids and AL-mohads brfore spain .
and there was many attemps from morocco to restore the city like MAWLAY ISMAIL
you are right Marocco didn´t exsist yet, but there was other kingdoms
