There’s probably nowhere else like Chefchaouen in the world. From a distance it looks like most other north Moroccan towns, full of square buildings huddled together on a mountainside.
When you get up-close however, its uniqueness stands out. The place is blue. Not just the occasional building, almost the whole town. It’s a very beautiful, slightly odd experience, almost like walking under the sea.
Chefchaouen is a fabulously pretty place. The surrounding mountains make almost every place a photo opportunity, and within the winding streets you can find the medina, a kasbah and the cobbled Plaza Uta el-Hammam.
Just outside the town is the Ras El Ma waterfall, and if you’re willing to travel a few miles further you’ll be able to see the famous Akchour Cascades.
