This was my last stop in Morocco before flying out of the country and i must say it is my favourite!! most of all, i really loved the blue houses/streets - the shade is so unique that i cannot find it anywhere else! According to our riad owner, the colour, known as Nila Blue actually chases away mozzies, which really... More

The medina of Chefchaouen is an amazing place wheere to explore the authenticity of the Jebala region. It is advisable to go there during the day as there is not much to see at night.

Read a number of books and reviews before going and as only there for a short time we decided to do the night time visit. We were travelling with our 9 year old son who has cerebral palsy so thought that it would be an excellent stimulation of the senses and decided to do the horse and carriage tour of... More

you think you might have seen everything and you have enough from all that blue after an hour walking there, but nearly every time you see a new street you like it again. it is one of the most picturesque things I have seen in my life. it is a rather small medina and it seems to have almost no...

There is the Medina which is the old city and also the new city. All the charme of Chefchaouen is in the old town: Medina

If you are going to Chef, you will definitely wind up in the medina. In my opinion, Chefchaouen has the best rugs in Morocco (and maybe the cheapest as well).

When I was in Chefchaouen it was very busy with place filled with tourists. Even so, inside the medina was still a relaxing and magical experience. The food that is on offer is world class and cheap. Ofcourse grab yourself a fresh orange juice from one of the many vendors. I didn't find there to be any hassle from the... More

A small and intimate medina, painted in blue and full of little shops. Weekends are not recommended as tourism is growing and many people are coming for the weekend from nearby Spain. During the week you can experience the authentic Moroccan life in the medina, taking marvelous shots in the small winding streets. Don't miss the view from above, from... More
