Chefchaouen, the blue city

Hello again!

The city of Chefchaouen (or simply Chaouen) in the North of Morocco was painted blue by the Jewish refugees of the 30’s. The reason for this (besides the religious one) was to cool down the heat of the summer months and also as a mosquito repellent.
On  my last post, I was recommending where to stay if you come to Chaouen and how to get to this beautiful blue city (HERE), on this week post I will show you the FIVE things to see.

Hola de nuevo!
Chefchaouen (o simplemente llamada Chaouen) en el norte de Marruecos fue pintada de azul por los refugiados judios en los años 30. La razon era para refrescar las casas y calles del calor en los meses de verano y como repelente de mosquitos.
En mi entrada anterior os aconsejaba como llegar a Chaouen y donde alojarse (AQUI), en el post de esta semana os muestro las CINCO cosas que ver.


 We were very well located in The Medina, we stayed in RIAD ZAITOUNA, from here we could access to the main points of the city by foot.

Nuestro alojamiento estaba muy buen situado en La Medina, estuvimos en RIAD ZAITOUNA, desde aqui pudiamos acceder a los principals puntos de la ciudad a pie.

1. Walk to the Spanish Mosque to enjoy the best views

Subir hasta la Mezquita Española para difrutar de las vistas














 2. Chaouen Waterfalls

    Las cascadas de Chaouen


The locals bath in the waterfalls and wash their clothes in the washing area.
Los locales se bañan en las cascadas y lavan la ropa en el lavadero














 

3. Medina streets

Pasear por la medina


                 

 

4.Chaouen Museum Castle

Castillo museo de Chaouen

Great views from the tower, a little museum and beautiful gardens.

5. The Main Square

La plaza

The Castle is in the Main Square where there are a lot of restaurants and coffee places and it is impossible not to stop for a drink or something to eat and enjoy the atmosphere.

El Castillo esta en la Plaza Outa donde hay muchos restaurants y cafes, es imposible no parar aqui a comer o tomar algo y disfrutar del ambiente.

Not to many tourists I think, which is nice because the authenticity is kept then.

Great pictures. I really want to see it myself :)
