As an amateur photographer, this city was perfect and unique, I loved the landscape scenery the endless possibilities I had for picture taking, the maze of cobbled stone streets, that never ends, the sensation that you have gone back in time when seeing the women washing clothes by the river, experiencing the pure essence of the culture. However you need... More

Chefchaouen was paradise until we were sucked in by Abdul, a carpet seller (Chez Abdul). Unfortunately it took us a few days to understand, and by then it was too late. Chefchaouen is a marvel. It is a beautiful, charming place that I will dream of for the rest of my life. But if you decide to step off the... More

I'm lucky to say that I have been in some great places, and I can surely say that this Medina really got me. The colours, the people (besides the young men who won't stop offering hash for you to smoke), the food, the sights... It is all overwhelming. Really an experience you can't let go by, if you have the... More

Wow. Strolling through the old city is really a must-do when you're visiting Chefchaouen. You easily get lost in the labyrinth of narrow blue streets, but you'll always find your way back eventually. It's much quieter here than in the busy medina of Marrakech for example and the locals, although very interested, just let you walk around on your own... More

Loved the little alleyways, different hues of blue and the proximity to everything. The most relaxing Medina experience we had

This is one of my favorite places of Morocco. And it is a must see if you ever visit this amazing country. Chefchaouen is a beautiful, quiet little village on a hill and away from the big city. The people are friendly, the food is good and the souvenirs are great! This place is so magical you really have to... More

Walking around the blue medina is one of the most pleasent things you can do in Morocco. After being in the crazy and overrated Fes, coming here was like arriving to heaven. There are lots of little bars, all nice and clean, with cheap and tasty food. There're green areas and amazing views of the rif. You don't have many... More

We stopped here on our way from Fes to Tangier. Despite the rain we found the town very charming. The color of blue pervades the entire city. In the evening there there is a very festive atmosphere . We enjoyed it very much
