Perhaps one of the most stunningly colored cities I have ever visited, Chefchauen, Morocco, provided me with a photo opp around every winding road, narrow alley and blue-walled building.
The entire medina is a refreshing bright blue stacked with white half-way up nearly every building’s wall. And then there are gorgeous splatters of color — souks with bright magenta leather sandals, electric turquoise wallets; scarves lining the walls; rich table cloths draped under plates of deep green salads and pink watermelon.
The day I spent wandering this city was my first in Morocco. I arrived via ferry from Tarifa, Spain to Tangier, Morocco, hopped a cab to the bus station and then hopped a locals bus (think rickety tin box with windows I thought would pop out) to Chefchauen.
I had heard about the magic of this city. How it enchants. Mesmerizes. It did just that for me as well.
I love this photo because the sun beaming in is just so, making every color just pop.

I’ve been to Chefchauen twice and loved it! The blue is just so beautiful. I like it more than Marrakech.
Thanks for the comment. I’ve been to Chefchaouen, Fez, Casa and Marrakech and my favorite was Chefchaouen! It really is beautiful!
