Chefchaouen

The last town we went to in Morocco was the little town of Chefchaouen.  It was founded in 1471 by Moorish exiles from Spain and also Jews seeking refuge.  It´s a beautiful little town set up into the mountains.  It is nicknamed “the blue city” because all the buildings are washed with blue.

There isn´t a whole lot to do in Chefchaouen, but it is a great place to chill out and relax, which was badly needed after a big city such as Fez.  We did, however, go to the kasbah, which had a beautiful view of the town and surrounding mountains.  There was also a great square with lots of restraunts and coffee shops. We found a cute little restraunt in the middle of the square that served us really good Moroccan soup and bread for under $2 including tip.  People watching was very interesting.  Every once in a while we would see someone leading a goat or two to sell at the market.  Joe bought a handmade woven jacket and a shoulder bag to carry his computer which we jokingly refer to as his purse.  It was a nice way to end our time to Morocco.
