The name refers to the shape of the mountain tops above the town, that look like the two horns (chaoua) of a goat. “Chef Chaouen” derives from the Berber word for horns, Shawn. There are approximately two hundred hotels catering to the summer influx of European tourists. One distinction possessed by Chefchaouen is its blue-rinsed houses and buildings. Chefchaouen is a popular shopping destination as well, as it offers many native handicrafts that are not available elsewhere in Morocco, such as wool garments and woven blankets. The goat cheese native to the area is also popular with tourists. The countryside around it has a reputation for being a prolific source of kief. The Chefchaouen region is one of the main producers of cannabis in Morocco. The growing tourist industry is geared especially towards Spanish tourists, who are especially numerous during great Catholic feasts like Semana Santa and Christmas. Chefchaouen was visited by Joe Orton and Kenneth Halliwell in 1967. They adored it finding it “very ‘Golden Bough-ish’ Orton mentions their trip in the Orton Diaries.

Aside from the mosque at Place Uta Hammam in the medina, there is also a mosque dedicated to the patron saint of Northern Morocco’s Jebalah region, Moulay Abdeslam Ben Mchich Alami. His tomb and the village surrounding it is, by the way, an hour’s drive or so from Chefchaouen on the old road to Larache. There is also a ruined mosque built by the Spanish, with stairs still in the tower. back to Fes City in the afternoon.

Along the route, we pass through the cedar forests of Azro, with a chance to stop and observe the Barbary apes which inhabit this region. The agricultural town of Midelt the capital of apples is our halfway point and makes a convenient lunch stop. Then continuing over the Col du Zad, we will cross the Tizi N’Tairhemt Camel Pass and drive through the Ziz Valley and Gorges. Finally, we will pass Meski Oasis, on the edge of the grand Sahara before arriving in Erfoud, known as the ‘door to the desert’.

There are interesting fossil workshops and an archaeological museum to visit along the way.
