Chefchaouen, one of the most beautiful cities in the Rif Mountains. Known for its valleys, medina and white houses with blue doors, Chefchaouen has the charm of a city that has preserved traditional Moroccan arts.
During this seven-hour excursion departing from Tangier, let yourself be driven to the heights of the Rif mountains, up to Chefchaouen, a former Berber station now home to a superb walled medina.
The main square represents the heart of Chefchaouen and presents a kasbah built in the eighteenth century, a central mosque and coffees menus authentically Moroccan. The market, crowded, offers a mix of utensils and Moroccan souvenirs, with excellent deals.
The city itself is easy to explore. The Kasbah, built by Moulay Ismaïl, is now in ruins and at its side is the Great Mosque. Although the old medina is small, you will find many souks selling a wide variety of products.
Finally, take a tour through the Jewish quarter behind the jeweler’s shop to experience the difference in style and atmosphere compared to the main Arab part.
