The charming Andalusian city of Morocco was described by the Lebanese writer Amin Rihani: “Chefchaouen is a group of shadows on the bright horizon.” Its unique name bears a beautiful connotation.

Perhaps, the most quintessential thing about this city is its beautiful blue and white houses that you see scattered along the hills. Truly magical.
