Chaouen or Chefchauen is a city in north-western Morocco, located in the Rif Mountains, a two-hour drive from Tangier (about 110 kilometres).

For many, this is the most beautiful city in Morocco. In fact, many of the photos used to promote the country portray corners of this city and its daily life. Its streets are narrow and its houses white and indigo, its people wear colourful garments and light shines on every corner. It is no surprise that it is a regular destination for artists from different disciplines searching for tranquillity and inspiration.

Chaouen is known as “The Pearl of the North” due to its sheer beauty and therefore, its inhabitants take care of it to make sure it doesn’t lose its splendour. They usually paint their houses several times a year and they even decorate the streets. They do this to maintain the beauty of the city and light and to keep insects away. Each corner of the city is a piece of folk art.

For three days, you’ll have plenty of things to do and see. You can meander through its medina, which is quite peaceful compared to those of other cities, and stroll through the souk and watch artisans at work. You can also take it easy and watch the goings-on at the main square, Uta el-Hammam Square, or visit the Kasbah and its exquisite Andalusian gardens.

It is also one of the best places in Morocco to buy local products. The craft industry is one of its main economic powerhouses and continues to produce ceramics, fabric, lanterns, etc. with traditional techniques passed down from generation to generation. It is said that the best artisans live in Chaouen, so don’t pass up the chance to buy a souvenir, and get ready to haggle.
Don't miss this chance and visit Chaouen.
