Inside the Kasbah
The first time I went I went with a big group of friends and we decided to try and make out typical holiday snaps more interesting by doing silly poses. It made everything far more enjoyable. In the photos attached you can see us inside the Kasbah.
All this fun for only a euro! The Kasbah is located in the main Square.
A very charming Rif town
Chefchaouene is a delightful town in the Rif Mountains. It seems to attract a lot of travellers. It's not too big a town with a relaxing atmosphere and its people are friendly and at ease compared to Tetouan and Tangier.
The medina is small so it's difficult to get lost here. Houses are painted blinding white with blue accents. Well worth a visit is the old kasbah which gives access to a cool and peaceful garden with refreshing water bassins.
There's not a great lot of other thing to do than walking through the Medina, do some shopping and drink tea in one of the many cafés, which makes this place ideal as a full day stopover on your itinerary.
Here's a good TIP that may be useful when wandering around the old town. Dead end streets are painted blue!
It's always very useful to check the weather before a trip:
The webs are for Tetouan, but Chefchaouene is very close.
How to transform from Fahrenheit to Celsius? Deduct 32, divide by 9 and multiply by 5.
Example: 85 Fahrenheit, minus 32 = 53, divided by 9 = 5,89 by 5 = 29,4 Celsius.
Wandering round the Kasbah Gardens in the warmth of a shaded sun, being able to stop and take in the surroundings, as well as get views across the Medina from the top of the tower.
This is one of the places where you can be outside, collect your thoughts, take your photos and just have some assured peace and quiet!
The Kasbah is open daily until 6pm except Tuesday, and closed each day between 1pm and 3pm. Entry costs 10dh and includes entry to the Ethnographic Museum.
