Stop At: Chefchaouen, Chefchaouen, Tanger-Tetouan-Al Hoceima

Chefchaouen was founded in 1471 as a small Kasbah (fortress) by Moulay Ali Ibn Rashid Al-Alami, a descendant of Abd As-Salam al-Alami and Idris I, and through them, of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Al-Alami founded the city to fight the Portuguese invasions of northern Morocco. Along with the Ghomara tribes of the region, many Moriscos and Jews settled here after the Spanish Reconquista (Inquisition) in medieval times. The city’s blue palette drives its origin from that same era, given that arriving Jewish exiles painted their houses blue to reflect their divinity — a tradition that continued through the centuries. It wasn’t until recently that the blue shades spread out of the Jewish quarter (the Mellah) to the other parts of the Medina (the old town) making it the “blue pearl of Morocco” we know today.

Stop At: Place Outa el Hammam, Avenue Hassan II, Chefchaouen 91000 Morocco

Every town and city has its square, and Chefchaouen is no exception. Plaza Outa El-Hammam boasts an ambiance that is a fusion of Moroccan and Spanish influences, seen overall in the fantastic food, both street food and restaurants, available throughout. The name means literally “The flat ground where the Hammam is” because near the square there is a Hammam as well as the Great Mosque and the Kasbah; so it could have been named Outa El-Kasbah or Outa El-Jamaa (mosque), but no. Anyway, it’s a great central point of the town; it can be great for simply relaxing and admiring the majestic mountains that overlook the city.

Stop At: Grand Mosque, Plaza Uta el-Hammam, Chefchaouen 91000 Morocco

Constructed in the 15th century, Chefchaouen’s Grande Mosque was built on the orders of the son of the city’s founder. It features an octagonal minaret, which is somewhat unusual when compared to the many square minarets that generally tower over the nation’s myriad mosques. The shape was influenced by Andalusian styles, brought to the country by Muslims from Spain. Built from stone, the shades of brown and beige are juxtaposed against the nearby blue and white buildings. Admiring the mosque is among the top things to do in Chefchaouen.

Stop At: Ras El Ma, 9 Av. Hassan II, Chefchaouen Morocco

Translating as head of the water, this is the point at which the fresh mountain water trickles its way into the town, and proves a popular gathering place for locals. Not only, are they an alternative to the remote and grand waterfalls of the mountains, but also these refreshing falls are much better to both escape the heat and to get another insight into standard daily life. Locals gather here to wash their clothes and simply have a friendly water cooler moment. The thundering water is used to power some mills (Rhas) spread on the sides of the water stream.

Stop At: Spanish Mosque, Chefchaouen 90001 Morocco

After a break for a delicious Chaouni lunch, your tour guide will escort you to the Spanish Mosque, or Bouzafaar Mosque, to take in the wonderful view over Chefchaouen from an outside terrace.
Located two 650 meters from Ras El-Ma, the Spanish Mosque is perched on a hilltop. The evocative ruins overlook the city, and it’s a terrific vantage point from which to admire the surroundings.

The white-washed mosque was built in the 1920s by the Spanish. It failed to attract local worshippers; it never has been used as a mosque. Consequently, it fell into disrepair. Restoration works were later carried out. As a non-working mosque, all visitors can take a peek inside. It is also called Boujaafar Mosque, and the word Boujaafar refers to the Spanish official who was in charge of building the mosque and who had an unusually big mustache.

This will be the end of your tour of Chefchaouen. Before heading to Tangier, you’ll be left with plenty of free time for more photos.
