Shades of Blue in Morocco

By Linda Tancs

Chefchaouen is Morocco’s “blue city.” It has nothing to do with an emotional state but rather with the hue that envelops this city nestled against the Rif Mountains. Indeed, its medieval walls are awash in blue, a sight to behold on a clear day when the blue sky seems to merge with the earth. Needless to say, it’s a photographer’s dream—and a hiker’s, too. The mountains beckon with valleys, gorges and picturesque peaks. Bus service is available from Fez or Tangier. Take a taxi from the bus depot to the center of town to avoid the steep walk.


To limit the spread of COVID-19, attractions may be closed or have partial closures. Please keep those affected by the virus in your thoughts and be sure to follow the safety practices advocated by the Centers for Disease Control. Stay safe, and be well.
