Guided tour of Chefchaouen
Chefchaouen, Fes and northern Morocco, Morocco
Nestled into the fold of the Rif Mountains, the ancient Moroccan town of Chefchaouen features bright blue buildings, red-tiled roofs and beautiful architecture, making the bustling medina a fascinating place to explore.
With pencil-thin alleys and a sea of startling blue buildings, there is no mistaking where the “Blue City” gets its nickname. Take a walk around the Medina, filled with houses painted blue and white, a tradition that derived from the town’s Spanish settlers in medieval times. Then see the 18th-century 'kasbah' mosque as well as the main square, with plenty of time to eat, stroll and shop at the souks.
