Chefchaouen Tailormade Holidays

High up in the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen is a beautiful blue door and white-walled medina that was originally a Berber post. Only visited by 3 Westerners up until 920 when Spanish troops invaded, Chefchaouen was once considered a city that was impossible to be visited by a Christian.

The main square is the heart of Chefchaouen, with the Kasbah (built back in the 18th century), central mosque and cafes with authentic Moroccan style menus. The market is a mix of traditional Moroccan and tourist souvenirs, very busy but worth a visit for the bargains on kilims. The town is easy to explore and the old Kasbah is worth a visit. Built by Moulay Ismail, it is now practically a ruin, and next to it is the Great Mosque. Although the medina is small, walk on to the main square and the souks, that sell an array of goods and pop into the tiny hat shop selling beanies and berets. If you head on to the Jewish quarter behind the jewellery souk, you will feel the difference between it and the main Arabic feel of the town.

The name Chefchaouen comes from “two horns”, the twin peaks that rise behind the town and the area is popular for trekking, anything from four hours and more and if you walk over the other side of the mountain, you will even see the sea.
