Chefchaouen is a gorgeous city in northeastern Morocco. It is the main city of the province with the same name. It was founded by the Moorish exiles from Spain in 1492 and lies near the Rif Mountains. It is a relaxed city with affordable accommodation.
The finest part would be the look of the city with most of the buildings painted brilliant sky blue. The clear mountain light that falls on the city gives it a magical touch. The humble town and the picturesque medina with a splendid backdrop of the Rif Mountains make it truly stunning.
Though it known as the largest producer of marijuana and few tourists do come for the reason, it is not the main reason to visit the beautiful blue city of Chefchaouen.
