Chefchaouen, a town with a million shades of blue “in photos”.

“IN PHOTOS” is a series I will use to share many of the hundreds of photos I have taken during my travels. It is a series I have thought about for a while now, but did not want to start until I got back home from my trip. However after spending a week in Chefchaouen, Morocco I couldn’t wait any longer. “IN PHOTOS” will not have a set schedule like my “MUSIC MONDAY” or “PHOTO ROUND UP” series. “IN PHOTOS” will be a post with several photos with no limit. The only restriction this series will have is that it must be about a certain subject or theme. I will write a brief paragraph or sentence describing the subject or theme of the photos and then post the photos. I will label the photos (if you hover over them with your mouse you will see the label), but I will not caption the photos like I do on my blog post or on “PHOTO ROUND UP” with my thoughts. I want to use “IN PHOTOS” to share my photos and let you come up with your own thoughts about the images and hope you share them with me.

Chefchaouen is a town in northwest Morocco situated in the Rif Mountains. It is a popular destination for tourist because of it’s proximity to Tangier, Morocco and Ceuta, Spain. It is a town made famous by the many shades of blue it is painted. I spent a few days here and couldn’t help, but fall in love with it. It is so peaceful and just relaxing. It is also a photographers dream (not that I am one) with amazing shots being able to be captured everywhere you turn. Here I share with you Chefchaouen, a town with a million shades of blue “in photos”.


Hope you enjoyed the photos & I hope you share your thoughts below.

  1. That is just awesome! I have never seen anything like this before. I love it!

  2. I’ve been waiting for this post 🙂 Blue just happens to be my favorite color, and I could see myself booking extra days to stay here too. And with the calming, peaceful feel of blue, it’s no wonder that it could keep you there longer than expected. There are some really nice shots there!

    love it! I want to swimming nown. lmao

  11. This is my favorite collection of photos you’ve ever posted on your website. You are turning into a very talented photographer with a great eye! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  12. Great photos, Jaime! Just found this while peeking around on your site. Chefchaouen was my favourite place in Morocco, no doubts! I thought Marrakesh and Fez were cool the first few days but the vibe and chill in Chefchaoen was *much* more of what I enjoy. It actually reminded me somewhat of Pushkar in India. You’ve been there, right?

      Thanks so much Justin, and yes I loved Chef for that same reason. It just was so damn relaxing and beautiful. I’m glad I spent over a week there. I think the city you are thinking about is either Jodhpur or Jaiper not sure, but it’s the blue city I visited in India, but it was NO WHERE near as cool as Chef.

  13. Do you know why blue?

    • Jaime Davila says:

      I heard several reasons from it keeps the flies away… to it’s easy on the eyes…. & it helps keep it cool in summer heat. I did notice all 3 of those things while I was there so I think it’s true.

  14. These are beautiful!!! I can’t wait to go here in March.
