Fantastic!

Astonishing place! For me, it's a number one medina in Morocco. Quiet atmosphere and lovely blue-colored buildings give a fresh taste of ancient times. I love it!

Not quite as impressive as the one in fes and smaller still than the one in Tangier, but it is cute, small and friendly. Not too many aggressive shop owners getting in your face.

Good lord, it was the most breath taking place I've ever been to! The walls are blue and the shop owners are nice and lovely. Worth more than a single visit. Don't miss the savon (Soap/Sapoon) shop!

Chilled out atmosphere, good access to local villages. Easy to navigate once you get your bearings. Shop keepers not too pushy. The highlight of our mini tour of Morocco.

It is smaller than Fes and after a short time you learn to find the way around. Very good value products to buy and mostly of good quality.

All the Colours - Beautiful! Make sure to go up to the mosque on top of the hill at sunset for a panoramic view. My hotel was amazing, in the heart of the blue medina.

Really nice town to visit and browse around! Nice restaurants and local shops! It is a bit of a complicated road to get there but it is worth it certainly!

We spent several days wandering around and photographing the blue medina. It is unique in the world - loads of blue paint along with steps and alleyways.

So many things to see and so many friendly people. There are many restaurants too. If you chance upon a cake shop, go get the orange cake there - it's the best orange cake ever!

Chefchaouen is very small city, so you can just walk around the city easily. Just take photos from this blue-city, having fun!
