Now we’re researching Chefchaouen, internationally known. The title means horns of a goat which is in reference.
A walk through the mountain city of Chefchaouen is the most scenic stroll one might have in Morocco. Narrow roads and alleys guide you through a city with a fort at its center.
There are several theories as to why the city is painted blue, but the consensus is that Jews escaping the inquisition in the 1400s arrived and began the custom. It is definitely a place where you will need to wear comfortable shoes.
I asked about to eat and several people suggested Casa Hassan. The restaurant is located one block away from the Kasbah. The food here is delicious! It is about 80 dinar for a three course meal.
Chefchaouen is a day trip choice if you are in Fes or Tangier, so that you don’t feel hurried, but I suggest spending the night. Don’t forget your camera for this location! There’s a photo opportunity around every corner.
There you have the blue city of Chefchaouen, Morocco! Have any other information regarding town? Leave a comment below!
