Of all the cities we traveled through on our 15 day adventure around Morocco, Chefchaouen was by far my favorite. Called the “blue city” because of its painted blue medina, the entire atmosphere was very different and much more laid back than any other medina we visited and the beautiful blue color was calming and a feast for the eyes. Much cleaner, less hectic and I could easily have spent my entire vacation there. Most tourists flock to Fez and Marrakech (also wonderful places in their own right) but this is a real hidden gem and I’m so glad we didn’t miss it. I’d also highly recommend Casa Perleta, also a gem of a riad. Wonderful room and host!
