When planning a trip to Morocco, be sure to add these three sights to your itinerary.
Chefchaouen: Morocco’s Blue City
The beautiful city of Chefchaouen, also known as “the blue pearl,” sits high in Morocco’s green Rif Mountains. Nobody is really sure why many buildings in the city are painted blue.Some say it keeps mosquitoes away, others that it keeps tourists coming.The blue is said to represent the sky and heaven.
For many, Chefchaouen is a place to escape Morocco’s big cities, discover its narrow streets, taste the local food and shop for souvenirs.Travelers may also like to explore the nearby hills, where they can find some of the area’s many cannabis farms.
