Silvia used to be a nomad who was often referred to as a nomad. She travels the roads to explore the world with unforgettable experiences. After years of touring, she is now trying to find a balance between continuing to explore beautiful places around the world while building a home in her native Norway.
Recently, on April 25, Silvia wrote an article about an extremely interesting place that she once visited. Before she went, she heard a lot about the name Chefchaouen, the famous green city of Morocco.
She even gets to see a lot of pictures of the “green pearl of Morocco” on Pinterest or Instagram. Silvia just thought, there are a few neighborhoods of this city that are painted blue to attract tourists, but that is not the case.
Silvia wrote: “Before visiting Morocco, I was shown a lot of pictures of beautiful blue alleys and houses. I also always wondered if the green city in Morocco is really that green? The whole thing Are all cities like that, or just a few streets?I was curious!
Hey guys, here’s the truth about Chefchaouen!
It’s so beautiful! And very, very green.
Chefchaouen was founded in 1471 in the Rif mountains by Jews and Moors fleeing Spain. I’ve heard a lot of different stories (some quite unbelievable) about why Chefchaouen is blue. It is said that it was painted blue by the Jews who settled there after fleeing Hitler, others say it was painted blue to repel mosquitoes, while some say it symbolizes represents the color of the sea.
I’m not sure which rumors are true, but blue is really perfect for Chefchaouen. It’s beautiful, heart-wrenching beauty!
Before visiting this place, I didn’t realize that Chefchaouen was in the mountains – the Rif mountains in the North of Morocco. The surrounding landscape is really amazing. I really wish I had enough time to walk around the nooks and crannies but I could only stay 2 nights and unfortunately the first day, it rained horribly.
If you visit Morocco’s “blue pearl” in March, bring some warm clothes just in case. The first day in Chefchaouen was so cold and rainy that my companion Danielle and I had to find refuge in the hot tub.
On the second day, the sun rose. Danielle and I parted ways to explore. And I officially love Chefchaouen. I love this quiet and relaxing city, and it’s really beautiful.
Chefchaouen is a perfect place to wander and take pictures. Since it’s a bit far from the bigger cities, which means higher prices, I don’t recommend people to go shopping. Chefchaouen is simply a perfect place to relax. Even the green of the town is peaceful.
Danielle and I spent most of our time relaxing in local restaurants and browsing the markets. We didn’t have to bother too much about getting to know any particular sights – instead, we just wandered aimlessly and enjoyed the beauty of the green city.
Chefchaouen is one of the most popular tourist attractions I’ve visited in Morocco.”
