Here follows an article published by ELLE DECOR Italy about Chefchaouen, the blue pearl of north Africa.
Is it possible to get lost in a seascape, staying in the heart of Morocco? If by sea we mean a poetic amalgam of infinite shades of blue, the answer is absolutely yes and there is also the perfect place to do it: the city of Chefchaouen, the “blue pearl” of the Rif.
Between the narrow streets of this inhabited center founded in 1400 by Andalusian exiles, Muslims and Jews, in fact, everything is blue, from the walls to the shop signs, from the doors to the steps of the streets, from the sky to the taxi cabs. It is not known whether this is due to ancient Jewish traditions, a lively expedient to remove insects, a colorful trick to keep the rooms cool and calm the mind or a tribute to the importance of water, but it does not matter because the result it is a suggestive city-painting unique in the world.
