A holy city with about twenty mosques and sanctuaries, it has charming powder-blue houses as well as the trademark dazzling lime-washed houses with blue doors. The local markets of Chaouen are animated with traditionally dressed habitants and colorful goods beautifully displayed.

Visit the famed Ras El Ma spring, the source of the pure and fresh water for which the city is so famous.

A delicious lunch in a famous Moroccan restaurant in the Medina completes the memorable experience.
