Chauen, the blue color of Morocco

Chauen is a city located in the northwest of Morocco. The mountains of the Rif surround it as if they were trying to protect its beauty and the purity that its streets and houses transmit. A range of blues seems to have turned the sea into stone and that is why millions of tourists choose it as a city they want to visit.

Wood, iron and leather are the materials on which the economy of this city is based. That is why the streets of its medina offer many craft shops that you can not miss during your visit! You should not forget to visit the Great Mosque, the Alcazaba, the washrooms or the Hamman Square.

The carpets are the most peculiar article of Chaouen. The decoration of the carpets with shades in gradient make them particular and of great attraction for their visitors.




One of the curiosities of this city is that it was considered for centuries as “Holy City” which prohibited the entry of foreigners. Thanks to this, the medieval elements of the city have been preserved almost in their entirety and the constructions of the current city have been made parallel to the old, thus preserving the charm of the tradition in its streets.
