This beautiful Moroccan city painted in blue offers both a serene atmosphere and striking views.
Nestled between mountains
Chefchaouen is situated in northwest Morocco, beautifully nestled in Morocco's Rif Mountains. It is an artsy, blue-washed city and is one of the most stunning treasures of the Maghreb.
Chefchaouen is divided into an eastern half (the medina), and a western half (the new city). The medina is characterised by its picturesque blue walls which were painted by Jewish refugees in the 1930s.
Get to know the locals
Unlike any other Moroccan medina, a large number of locals still live in Chefchaouen's old town. You can walk around the medina and take in local life which has changed little over the centuries.
Populated by no more than 40,000 inhabitants, the Blue City is home to a large number of mosques and each of them is unique in its own way.
Chefchaouen's romantic narrow streets
The Medina is perfect for aimless strolls along the narrow and exceptionally romantic streets, where the depth of the blue is emphasised by the fresh rays of sun.
