‘Inland from Tangier and Tetouan and situated in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a photographer’s dream.’
Painted blue by Jewish refugees in the 1930s, Chefchaouen must be the bluest city in the whole world.
Friendly and pleasant, Chefchaouen (chef – sh – ow – en) is an attractive introduction to the Morocco outside the hustle and bustle of Casablanca, Fez, Rabat and Marrakech. It’s a city of 50,000, but it feels intimate and manageable inside the medina’s maze.
It was founded in 1472 as a fortress to protect against Portuguese invasions. Of course those in power switched back and forth numerous times, so today’s Chefchaouen is a mix of Arabic, French and Spanish influences.’
