Located just inland from Tangier and Tetouan, Chaouen, as referred to by the locals, was founded as a fortress in the 1400s. Chefchaouen is renowned for its dreamy blue-rinsed houses, its artisanal wool products and delicious, top-quality goats cheese. It’s name refers to the shape of the mountain tops above the town, that look like the two horns (chaoua) of a goat. Water is abundant in this hillside town creating a network of mineral rich caves surrounding the mountains.

Stop on top of the mountain to enjoy a panoramic view of Chefchaouen. You’ll arrive at 12:00 PM and have four hours free to explore the small winding streets of the town. Visit the medina to peruse Arab-Andalusian traditions and products. Visit the main square Plaza Uta El- Hammam, where the amazing 15th century Grand Mosque and kasbah sits. This Mosque, with its unusual octagonal tower, was built by Jewish refugees who alongside Muslims escaped Spanish persecution by fleeing to Chefchaouen. Learn about the history and culture of this area at the Kasbah Museum or the Ethnographic Museum which contains musical instruments, antique weapons, and photographs of the old town.

Visit the famous Ras El-Maa Waterfall to breathe in some fresh air while listening to the sound of water and enjoying the green hills. If you keep walking, you will get a beautiful view of the city from the Spanish Mosque, an easy walk up the hill. Enjoy a tasty lunch in the square or from a rooftop restaurant and indulge in some people watching. On a hot day cool yourself with lunch sitting in the riverbed.

In the late afternoon depart for Fez arriving at 08:00 PM.
