10. Tangier: Full-Day Trip to Chefchaouen
After being collected from your Tangier accommodation, you will travel towards Chefchaouen. The city of Chefchaouen is one of the most attractive places of the north of Morocco, standing between the Rif mountains as a small piece of Andalucía. In the past, Chefchaouen was a walled city, which is why the Medina is divided into seven neighborhoods. One of them is Er Rif Al Andalus, where the Majzén Square can be viewed. Er Rif Al Andalus is also an access point to Uta el-Hammam, the most important square of the city. Here, in the Kasbah, the Andalusian Gardens and the Ethnic Museum can be found.
Traveling further and bordering the Mosque, you will encounter the Mellah (the Jewish neighborhood) and Es Sueca, where many textile and craft shops are. Coming back to Uta el Hammam Square, you will encounter Es Sok, where the Moorish were settled in the 15th century. This area is home to two beautiful monuments, Huata Square, with its amazing fountain, and the Suk Mosque.
Traveling through Uta el-Hammam Square once more, you will discover Kenitra Square Appears, which due to its remarkable breadth creates a stark contrast alongside the narrow streets. Other worthwhile place in the area are En Onsar, containing Zaituna Square and its centenary olive tree. Once outside the Medina and through Bab Onsar Gate, the Ras el Ma Fountain offers an incredible visual sight with its cascades, its naturally formed pools, and its mills and the washerwomen. From this point, you will enter the Medina in the El Rif Sebbadin neighborhood, where Sebbadin Square and a 15th-century mosque are located. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be transported back to your Tangier accommodation.
