Travel Photography of Chefchaouen, Morocco | The Blue City | North Africa Adventures

jjshotme-bluepearl1

This is Chefchouen.  I fell in love with this city nestled in the northern mountains of Morocco.  It is called “The Blue City”.  The tradition of painting things blue here began with the fleeing of the Jewish refugees from the Spanish Inquisition in the 15th Century.  The blue was to mirror the sky and remind them of God.
