If you want to visit a place that is a little bit different from the ordinary, then you should visit Chefchaouen – The Blue City of Morocco. This city is a unique one, because the walls are all painted in blue. The painting of the walls started in 1930 because of the Jewish refugees, who believed that blue associates with the heaven and sky. The citizens of this place still follow the tradition and repaint their homes every spring, using a blue pigment that is sold in bags and pots throughout the city.
Chefchaouen attracts many tourists who enjoy wandering through the town’s narrow streets along with the handicrafts that the citizens offer, such as blankets and wool garments. Take a look at the photos below to see the blue shades of this unique city. Enjoy!
