Highlights of a Free Tour in Chefchaouen
Approaching Chefchaouen (also known as Chaouen) feels like witnessing a mirage. The so-called Blue Pearl of Morocco is an ocean of blue little houses in the midst of the stunning Riff Mountains, on north-west of the country. As you will discover with Free Tours in Chefchaouen, the famous blue houses in the old town are not only stunning, but also highly poetic. The Jewish community that fled Europe after WWII used blue colors to connect spiritually with the Heaven and God. At the heart of the city, in Uta el Hammam Square, you will find the red walls of the ancient Kasbah, a fortress offering stunning views from the tower. Next to it you can find the Ethnographic Museum of Chefchaouen, the perfect place to learn about folk art and local traditions. Walking across the Chefchaouen Medina, or going up Bab El Mahrouk, you will also find incredibly photogenic spots. So, you better have your camera ready!
