Probably the most beautiful town in Morocco. Perched in between hills up high, has a beautiful view across hills an the valley. The houses in the old section are white washed with blue. It feels a little touristy, but not that many people around, and the locals are very nice! I felt confident and perfectly safe to wander alone. Well... More

This small town was one of our favourite stops in Morocco. The blue colour is stunning and makes for gorgeous photos. We had a nice afternoon wandering around and shopping.

We had an amazing experience in Chefchaouen. While walking in the beautiful blue medina, I was taking hundreds of pictures and didn't notice until it happened that my iPhone was being stolen. I screamed thief and that my iPhone was taken and 20-30 villagers jumped to my aid and ran in all different directions, alleys up and down steep stairways... More

There are a wide range of kiocks, leathers, weaving, clothes foods, especially breads. If you are unsteady on you feet use a walking stick, cobble stone and many ups and downs. Three moques (access for Muslims only) one church. There are many local people who look European but are not thanks to intermarriage when Spain and France were in power.

A small town. Amazing little alleys and corners amazing views surrounding the town from pretty much all angels. Best visited during the spring season.

Friendly people in an amazing city - well worth travelling a little out of our way to see this. We spent a couple of hours just wandering through the city and down to the river - many happy, laughing people and children playing. Just made the day even a little better. The blue colours are amazing!

Nice place, in fact it's it's the best old thing I've seen in Morocco. The main square of the medina is fantastic. Enjoy your time by sitting in one of the local restaurants and looking at the Kasbah and lazy local life. Blue colored buildings are amazing! Must be there!

We almost skipped Chefchaouen ("Chaouen") due to extremely bad weather (13-15 degrees, rain and strong winds) in Tetouen 60 kms north of there. Luckily our Riad hosts convinced us to go, and just after leaving the dark clouds of Tetouen we saw the sun - and had it the remainder of the day. Its easy to get there with Grande... More
