Want to discover Chefchaouen? There are a thousand and one ways to do so. Splendidly perched under the primeval peaks of the Rif, Chefchaouen is one of the most beautiful villages in Morocco, an artsy, blue-washed mountain village that feels like its own world.
While tourism has definitely taken over, the balance between convenience and authenticity is just right. Chefchaouen is a small mountain town in north-eastern Morocco with a population of 40,000, built at an altitude of 600m at the foot of the Kelaa and Meggou mountains, which form the Jebel Chaouen on the Rif mountain range.
It is full of charm and authenticity and away from the major tourist centres.
The old medina is a delight of Moroccan and Andalusian influence with red tiled roofs, bright blue buildings and narrow streets that converge onto the Plaza Uta el-Hammam and its restored Kasbah.
In the bends of its narrow streets with their Mediterranean decor of whitewashed houses decorated with pale blue, you will discover historical monuments such as the great mosque "El Masjid El Adamaa".
And in the evening, after climbing to the heights of the Atlas hotel, you will be able to admire a splendid sunset over the city and the valley.
The province has, in the field of tourism, important and diversified potentialities made up of historical monuments, numerous sandy beaches and vast forests with a very varied fauna and flora.
You could also discover other potentials of the city such as the source of Ras El Maa (3 km from the city of Chefchaouen), the old medina, tranquil and small with the Kasbah, the waterfalls and the mosque of Cherafat, the forest of Talassemtane, the cave of Toughoubit and the Bridge of God in Akchour.
