I love this city!!! All blue. Turquoise blue, sky blue, light blue... many colors of blue! An old lady was repainting walls, and she gave me her brush. I painted the wall! Women here are not very friendly, but nice and warm. They are just a Muslim, do not talk to us a lot... Anyway this is my favorite place.

Chefchaouen is a magical town, beautiful and people are so friendly that sometimes you let your guards down. I was there 2 weeks ago and my friend and I went inside this store full of antiques run by an old man in the morning, we were the only ones inside and after 5 minutes a "french guy" came in also...

It was not overwhelming and will prepare us for our next 2 places y To visit in Morocco. Did not find the touts to be aggressive, often very warm and friendly. Cautious about 'made locally', my 'Berber dress, made in the Sahara' was made in India.

I was really excited to sea the blue pearl, but it was an good experience not extraordinary. Maybe my expectations was too high. I don't recomend this on summer, definitely that affect my experience, because is crazy hot, dry hot and is not enjoyable to walk around that type of weather. I suggest to do this by tour. I'm a...

It is beautiful and we loved it. People are friendly and helpful. They sell amazing things from the desert and from other places of Marrocos at good prices.

A good break from the crazy busy Medinas in larger Moroccan cities. The rural city character and intense blue and white buildings are pleasing. It is a hillside town so you have a lot of steps and sloped cobble streets but if your not in a hurry it shouldn't be a problem. Good restaurants and a lot to see. Give... More

A very nice medina with a lot of interesting shops, very unique. Especially the blue color is omnipresent and very characteristic.

Even in August Chefchaouen was not too overcrowded and the people are super friendly. The blue painted buildings are wonderful, it's great to just wander the back streets and enjoy the views of the mountains through the gaps in the blue buildings.
