A basic Kasbah.

It's a stone building. There are some rooms and some gardens but it is a little "morocco" style. IE not a beautifully cared for historical landmark but rather something that is... read more

This is a national historical monument. The fortress was built by the founder of Chefchaouen, Mulay Ali Ben Musa Ben Rached, in 1471. Entrance fee is only 10Dh (1 Euro). It's interesting to notice on the ticket how information is written in Arabic, French and Berber (!). The museum is small but gives interesting information on the various influences and... More

It's a stone building. There are some rooms and some gardens but it is a little "morocco" style. IE not a beautifully cared for historical landmark but rather something that is just there. Worth a look inside but wouldn't have been too disappointed if I had only seen it from the outside.

The ethnographic museum and gallery are closed, so basically it's just a tower (with some posters explaining points of local history on the walls) and a one-cell prison (with original shackles still in place). Some nice photo ops from the windows of the tower.

There are interesting historical displays. Climb the stairs to get a heightened view of the garden and square. The hours seem to change...I sat enjoying a tea out in the adjoining square and saw it open, went in.

In the museum you can find a bit about the work that is done to make Mozaics and gypsum calligraphy. For 1 euro (10 dirham) you can enter the garden and the museum, so it is definitely worth it.

Even in January, daffodils were just coming up and the garden exuded calm and beauty. Clime the stairs to the top of the tower for a view of the gardens and the city.

Very interesting to walk around and explore with interesting gardens and stunning views from the towers. Definitely worth the entry fee to go and see.

Kasbah is located In the center of the medina. It has quirky hours - up to the lady showing up to sell the entry tickets. The kasbah was constructed by Morocco's greatest builder, Sultan Moulay Ismail. It served as a prison in which you are able to walk around - we were told by our guide that the people brought...

The exhibits are poorly set up and organized. Descriptions are only in Spanish. The only thing worth going to this museum for is the view and photo op from the tower.
