Chefchaeon is a very iniquity in Morocco because of the colour scheme of the buildings within the medina. Its predominantly blue colour was linked to the belief that it drove flies away. Yes, those pesky winged insects that swarm around you when they smelled food...More

We did not get lost - although it looks easy enough to do. Very pretty with lots to see, even if you aren’t that keen on photos. The local people are lovely and keen to be helpful. Great to visit.

So it’s good bargaining time. It’s more hilly than other Medina so wear good shoes. Might be a little tough for older folks.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Chefchaouen. People are nice and the place is cozy. You can just enjoy the good view with your hot tea or coffee.

It is quite small. It depends how much shopping you want to do. The locals who have something to sell will not leave you alone for a second! They are very, very pushy. I think an hour or two is plenty of time.
