Chefchaouen is a town in the northwest of the Kingdom of Morocco. Chefchaouen was founded in 1471 by Jews and Moors escaping from Spain. The original name of the city derives from the Berber word “Ashawen” which means “The Horns”. Chefchaouen is considered to be a holy city with eight mosques and a number of different zaouias and marabouts.
There are various theories regarding its blue color. Some say it had been painted blue to keep the mosquitoes away, others say that Jews introduced the blue when they took refuge from Hitler in the 1930s, whereas some simply say it represents the color of the ocean.

I travelled two times to Morocco, and in both times I have trusted Desert Morocco Adventure to organize my trip, like driver and guide, host and sharing different activities. The first trip I stayed with Desert Morocco Adventure during 4 days, and the second trip during 8 days.
I went to Morocco last Christmas and contacted Desert Morocco Adventure for a travel to the desert. It was a great experience and Youssef is the best conductor. very recommendable! Thanks for everything
Desert Morocco Adventure gave us a great day out where we got to see many things we would not have found independently such as the Fint Oasis near Ouarzazate and Ait Ben Haddou. Ahmed is a really informative guide.
