Chefchaouen or Chaouen called by the Moroccans.
Another nick name is The Blue pearl, due to all the (indigo) blue houses.
One thing is certain, you expect a city with blue houses, but you will be amazed how blue Chefchaouen truly is.
Every building in the city is coated up to six time a year in thick blue paint. The shades of blue are multiple hues of aquamarine, indigo and cobalt.
The blue is said to symbolize the sky and heaven, and serve as a reminder to lead a spiritual life. Another popular theory is that the blue keeps mosquitos away.
Chaouen is about one of the most photogenic places I know and my favorite color isn't even blue...
