Surrounded by mountains and perched on hills, the city of Chefchaouen Morocco offers visitors an unusual calm and serenity. In particular, most of the houses here are painted a distinctive dark blue. Stepping along the narrow cobblestone streets, visitors will feel a little something very distinctive about the city.
In the 15th century, Chefchaouen became a fortress of refuge for Jews expelled from Spain. The Jews painted their entire holy site a striking blue. The walls of churches, alleys, and houses, putting on Chefchaouen City a cool blue shirt, standing out in the scorching sun of Africa.
Traditional Mediterranean wool and fur shops, fruit stalls, and spiced powder stalls rise into cones of all different colors in the narrow winding alleys enhancing the beauty here.
Roadside cafes on street corners are a highlight here. Most of the cafes here are very gently decorated with open spaces, gently designed in a traditional style. You can order snacks at these cafes. The specialty of this city is Naan bread served with Tanzine stews.
Young tourists fondly call Chefchaouen “it place”, and during the high season, you will find it difficult to find a place to stay if you do not book in advance.
