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
