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.
