This Town’s Most Distinct Characteristic Is Inescapable… And Incredibly Fascinating.

So, Chefchaouen is a small town in northern Morocco, which boasts rich history and beautiful architecture and natural surroundings. But then, many other towns in North Africa can claim the same distinctions. Well, this one has something that makes it special.

See, the walls of the buildings of Chefchaouen’s old town are covered in vivid blue, which creates an amazing atmosphere. The blue tradition is said to have been introduced in the 1930s by Jewish refugees in 1930, to symbolize the sky and heaven. Well, I’m glad they did it.
