The Cathedral of St Mary of the Assumption (Spanish: Catedral de Santa María de la Asunción) is the Roman Catholic cathedral of the Spanish city of Ceuta located in a small exclave on the north coast of Africa.

The cathedral is a 15th-century structure, built on the site of a sixth-century Christian church. There have been considerable additions to it since its construction, and its most notable external feature today is its neoclassical entrance. Other notable features include a Renaissance black marble portal and a baroque altar in the chapel of Santísmo.

The cathedral contains works of art dating from the 17th century to the present day.
