I read about and heard so much about for years so I was really curious to see it. It is a nice town, but I was a bit disappointed. Thought the whole town is blue, even coating on the streets, all just blue. In the pictures on internet it was so but not in reality. One and another street was... More

Chefchaouen stands out because it is unbelievably picturesque and notably calmer than the typical Moroccan old city / Medina. It might be the blue paint, or the fact that it's less of a tourist trap because it's harder to access, but it's a really unique place and a must visit for travelers to Morocco. Probably the most beautiful place I've... More

Loved it! Amazing city, amazing pictures. The only bad site was a long drive through curvy mountain roads to get here. But it was well worth it!

Chefchaouen Medina is a few hours from Europe and a long way to past memories of south Mediterranean European countries' habits like those of our grandmothers. It’s a time capsule but is also a place to enjoy Morocco day-to-day life and the special weekly market, with coming local farmers. Try a haman, the pigment colorful shops or local cooperatives.

Tucked away in the heart of Chefchaouen, this hotel is full of unusual features and Morrocan charm. Service is friendly and helpful. Room clean and brightly coloured, ensuite bathroom in a unique arched enclave. Food on late arrival was quickly brought to the dining room from restaurants in main square by very obliging staff. Easy walk to market stalls and... More

Winding narrow streets where one can loose notion of time and space and follow the steps of millennia of history while mingling with the locals and the shop owners.

We weren't disappointed, seriously its like walking through a postcard and every corner you look around is like a photo from the national geographic. Its a photographers dream. We visited in July with our ten year old daughter, id say it was very familt friendly and the shopkeepers were very... More

Maybe because of the blue or because of the surrounding landscape! This medina is one of the most beautiful to visit, and quite close if you come from Europe by car or bike and do not wish to go further... Amazing people and some interesting galleries to visit!

This place will provide you with the most beautiful pictures. It is small and quaint and the people don't hassle you like in the bigger cities. you can walk without a guide but do take a map. Everything is literally blue. and beautiful. The visual is so amazing around every corner. Worth spending a day or two if you have... More
