TWH Travels: Chefchaouen, Morocco

Tucked away in Africa’s northernmost mountain range, the Rif Mountains, Chefchaouen, or better known as the blue pearl, is filled with Berber tribespeople amoungst other locals and children playing in beautiful powder-blue buildings and alleyways. For reasons beyond style, the entire city is surrounded by soft blue hues to what locals say is to keep insects away or if you’re religious; to be reminded of God’s power.

Overwhelmed by its charm, Chefchaoeun was hands down our favourite city in Morocco. We spent two days in Chefchaouen and it was just enough time to slow down and enjoy the relaxed pace of life this town seems to have mastered. We took our time roaming the streets: visiting local shops, trying our first traditional tagine dish served on a bed of fluffy couscous, and passing time in the Medina.

Chefchaouen left us excited to explore more of Morocco and I’d highly recommend a day or two in this gem of a city. I didn’t feel uncomfortable or uneasy at any point unlike some of the other cities we visited throughout our trip. Its locals were genuine, authentic and raw – qualities all harder to come by these days!
