A must see place and to have a meal in the Chefchaouen Medina. The food was one of the best tasted, especially the Lamb Targine. The atmosphere is like an Arabian Night story and watching people walking about was just a unique experience 5/5

It's beautiful & inspiring. The locals take pride in their city. Be mindful while photographing and if locals may be in the frame, be sure to ask permission or skip it. No one likes to live in a fishbowl, though at the same time the locals are encouraging of tourism and genuinely helpful while not coming across with a sense... More

The Medina in Chefchaouen is nothing short of magical. Walk around and explore and enjoy all of the various shades of blue. Locals are much friendlier and less aggressive with tourists compared to Fes and Marrakech.

Worth staying in the Medina. Quite small and hilly. Slippery on a rainy day. Some good restaurants. Go.

Smaller and cleaner than Marrakesh and Fez plus you have the eye catching blue colors everywhere. And the shop keepers are less (slightly) aggressive. Most exude friendly Moroccan charm.

The pretty blue and whitewashed buildings of the Medina set against the backdrop of the Rif mountains are stunning. I spent around 2 hours wandering around the little passageways. The main square by the Kasbah is also a nice place to sit with a mint tea and watch the world go by. I highly recommend a trip here if you... More

We just loved the narrows streets that have been painted in blue and white. Every street is a Instagram worth image. You will not feel like you are in morocco. very picturesque

It feels like the time has stopped when you're there and you were transported to another world. Amazing culture! All the goods were beautiful and very tantalizing to the eyes. I want to go back there.
