Morocco is undoubtedly a land blessed with unique structures, with places that exude a special energy. From this category is part Chefchaouen, a town located in the province with the same name, in the north-west of Morocco. Chefchaouen is different from all other cities in the world, being surnamed, in a suggestive way the “Blue City”. The obsessively colored buildings make Chefchaouen a unique city.
Chefchaouen was founded in 1471, being at first a small town, intended to defend the area from the Portuguese invasions. The original fortress exists today, being the oldest structure in the city. Chefchaouen is today a popular tourist destination, where each one of us would like to go at least once in life. The area is highly developed in terms of tourism; there are dozens of luxury hotels, restaurants, bars and chic cafes, with great staff always at visitors’ disposal.
Chefchaouen is not necessarily a place that consists of many sights, but the blue buildings and the blue alleys are unique aspects that are not found anywhere in the world. In Chefchaouen is nice to wander in order to simply admire the buildings in the city and to make new friends, because the Moroccans are hospitable and helpful. The city is not famous only for its blue buildings, but it is a popular destination for shopping lovers.
