“Nice visit”
The waterfall of Ras el-Maa is just beyond the far Northeastern gate of Chefchaouen Medina. It’s here, where the water comes gushing out of the mountain, that local women come to do their washing. The sound of the water and the verdant hills provide...more

this is not a proper waterfall, however quite nice to see locals washing carpets in the water, or the terrace that has seats directly in the water. Locals are selling orange juice in the area and it's also very easy to find because its at...More

If you walk north along the river or head to the northeast corner of the medina, you come to some waterfalls. It is a popular gathering place on a Sunday. Cross the bridge and follow the trail to the right. Follow that trail gradually uphill...More

Just outside the eastern gate of the old city, this cascade turns into small whitewater rapids that continue to flow down into the valley. A bridge crosses the waterway and around it you'll find little market stalls and locals selling the same knick-knacks and souvenirs...More
