Chefchaouen or Chaouen, as the local Moroccans call it, is known as Morocco’s “Blue Pearl”. This is because the inhabitants paint all of the buildings blue. No one knows exactly why this is done. There are two main theories, however. The first is that the blue color keeps the mosquitoes away. The second theory is that according to the Jewish tradition it is believed that the color blue represents the sky which in return reminds people of heaven and God. It serves as a reminder to lead the people’s spiritual and moral lives. Regardless of the real reason, the color covering the city gives it an amazing charm, calmness, and joyful spirit. The mountainous surroundings give this sweet town an illusion of isolation from the crowded and loud world outside. The city has an atmosphere of relaxation, comfort, and peace. It is the perfect place to go on a vacation.
