Missing Chefchaouen

By Sarah


If you are lucky enough to travel to Morocco, don’t miss a visit to Chefchaouen. It isn’t an easy spot to travel to – there are no trains – but it is well worth the effort. When I think back on last summer in Morocco, I miss Chefchaouen the most.

And, if you are lucky enough to visit Chefchaouen, try the local goat cheese. It is fantastic. Get lost in the blue medina. Check out the local a carpet shops and apothecaries.

I wish I had bought a carpet in Chefchaouen. The sales people were convincing but gentle. I just didn’t have the money. The carpets in the picture reflect the unique style of carpets from Chefchaouen. But, the pictures I took in the local shop were dark and not worth of posting. A Chefchaouen carpet is blue like the city. I wish I had one in the my home – a bit of Chefchaouen to bring back with me.

    As a Moroccan myself; I feel both ashamed and proud at reading your descriptions and looking at your pictures. They all show
    artistic intuition, benign appreciation of the local culture. Thank you. I’m excited because I’m going to Morocco this upcoming February and I will certainly stop by Chefchaouen to buy me one of the nice half Jellaba for the winter.

    keep the good work

    You should only be proud to be Moroccan. Morocco is a country of contrasts; rich and poor; educated and illiterate; urban and rural; modern and traditional. The list goes on. The beauty of Morocco comes from the contrast and the artistic and cultural traditions that embrace it. There is nothing to be ashamed of. Salam.

    I miss chaouen too. I loved the goats cheese!! The best EVER. Also check out the little mosque on the hill. And walk up to the spring (le source). This town has touched my heart. I think back to the month I spent here every day. I look forward to when I can return.
