The Blue Medina

Explore the Blue Medina

Chefchaouen’s medina is small and uncrowded, making it easy to explore and certainly one of the loveliest in Morocco. The winding paths will keep you curious, but its small enough that you’ll never get too lost. Most of the buildings are painted a blinding blue-white, giving them a clean, fresh look, while terracotta tiles add an Andalusian flavour.

The shopping here is much easier than in other parts of the country - the merchants tend to be mostly quiet until you ask for their prices, and are in general quite friendly and open to chatting. While Fes and Ouarzazate are better for rugs and leather goods, Chefchaouen is a great place to pick up smaller souvenirs and get a taste of shopping in Morocco.

The Blue Streets

Walk the blue-washed streets

Although it’s a bit of a mystery what caused the town to paint itself blue — some say the color is intended to keep mosquitoes away, others say it was painted by the Jews who settled there after escaping the Spanish Inquisition, and still others maintain that the blue simply symbolizes the sea or the sky — one thing is evident: Chefchaouen looks good in it.

The Spanish Mosque

Watch sunset from the Spanish Mosque

Take some time in the evening to watch the town come alive from one of the viewpoints on the neighboring hills, like the Spanish Mosque. It’s a sight you won’t forget, as Chefchaouen lights up in its glittering splendor, house by house, flicker by flicker, set to the echoing chorus of evening calls to prayer that’s so hauntingly beautiful you just might get chills.
