An absolutely extraordinary place. A visit into another century. Tripadvisor would like me to say more. I'm torn between recommending it, and wanting to keep it a secret and have the place to myself.

The city has a rustic feel to eat. It is small but very charming. It is very friendly and fun to just wander around the Medina and look at the small shops available. Perhaps it took only a good 2 hours to explore the city, but when you have enough time in Morocco, this is an excellent city to vist.... More

Everything is blue as you see any angle. Women sometimes seems to paints the walls, and keep them blue. I found the water from the tap for free, it's safe and we can drink! Always I bring my bottle, and I saw the tap, I made it full of water for the next day. We can feel calm and quiet... More

The medina in this city is totally unique because of its amazing blue hues, the large square, the kasbah and the mosque. Not large enough to get lost in, but still a magnificent maze which takes time to explore and discover!

Haven't been to many medinas, but how could it get any better, lots of shops in a fascinating fairy tale like setting...the shop keepers are respectful and friendly. The main items are local leather crafts, slippers purses and woollen goods such as sweaters, toques, and jellabas. Just walking about is magical everywhere you look!

Sadly, there were lots of guys saying, come see my family business etc etc. Fallowing us, being more aggressive than any other place we visited. This was my third time in Chaouen and I just didn;' expect that. Made me sad. Other than that- it is a gorgeous Medina and if you do decide to shop, once you pick a... More

You have the square in the middle with all the little cobblestone pathways around it. There are restaurants, little shops and cafes. There is a kasbah that you can pay 10dh to enter. It has a tower that has a nice view of the town and a prison that is just one room with some chains on the wall. The... More

We had done a lot of reading up before we arrived but still we were blown away with this charming medina! Everyone was so friendly! There really weren't any bargains to be found but that was OK, too!

As the medina is was easy to explore with its twist and turns. The medina is on a side of a hill so there will be plenty of up-hill and down-hill walking. The square is a good place to have mint tea or fresh fruit juice
