Chefchaouen and surroundings: short trip to Morocco

Go through the Bab el Ain gate and reach the Medina of Chefchaouen, where the Uta el-Hamman Square will blow your mind at the shades of blue and azure of the buildings and we are sure you will want to take a photo at every corner! A note of different color is that of the Kasbah, salmon pink: the fortress dates back to the period between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and today you can visit the Ethnographic Museum on the inside. UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997, the Medina of Tetouan is the beating heart of the city and houses over 30 sacred buildings.

Chefchaouen

The mystical blue city of Morocco

Access to Chefchaouen was forbidden to foreigners until the 1950s, a factor that has allowed it to remain intact and "unspoilt" to this day. There are several theories as to why this city is painted blue: according to some, the Jews painted the houses to recall the colour of paradise, according to others the reason is purely practical, since blue is a good insect repellent. One certainty is that it's a unique city you absolutely cannot miss!

  • Lose yourself in the alleys of the blue city
  • Discover the Medina
  • Admire the Tarik-Ben-Ziad Mosque
