Morocco: The Blue Town of Chefchaouen

Authors experiences History Morocco Travel

This delightful “blue” mountain town in Morocco decided to make their town stand out from all the other white towns, by encouraging their residents to use light shades of blue. Each owner adds their own embellishments to help make theirs stand out in the blue town. Chefchaouen is about 2 hours from Tangier, which is where the ferry from Spain enters Morocco. Walking up the hill to explore the maze of alleyways full of restaurants and vendors selling touristic and everyday needs is a fun experience. There is an old fortress (Al Kasba) dating back to 1471 CE as well. Our young guide spoke very good English, and was a tourism student who grew up and is living in the town.
