We will then continue on to Chefchaouen is one of the prettiest towns in Morocco, an artsy, blue-washed mountain village that feels like its own world. Moulay Ali ben Rachid founded Chaouen in 1471 as a base for Riffian Berber tribes to launch attacks on the Portuguese in Ceuta. The town expanded with the arrival of Muslim and Jewish refugees from Granada in 1494, who built the whitewashed houses, with tiny balconies, tiled roofs and patios (often with a citrus tree in the centre), that give the town its distinctive Spanish flavor. After touring around we will get you checked into a local boutique 5-star Riad. You can get settled and have a relaxing evening.

You will love exploring the pastel colors of the markets, the white washed homes and many cute boutiques and galleries all over this little town. We will enter the old medina via the Bab El Bhar gate and once inside, you will be transported to another time, exploring the market and soaking in the local environment. We’ll stop for a great lunch before finishing our adventure back in Tangier.
