Located in the north of Morocco, the isolated Chefchaouen is also known as Blue City, or Blue Perl. All the streets and houses of this city are painted blue, making it a unique city, more and more seeking by photographers and Instagram’s fans.
The pair of photographers Tiago Marques and Tania De Pascalis spent a few days in this village, in order to share this incredible destination with the world. If you think that Morocco is just Marrakesh, you will see that this country has much more to offer to tourism, like this little blue village.
Nobody knows why the whole city was painted blue, but it is believed to have been during the Spanish Inquisition. Soon after the foundation of the city in the fifteenth century, several Jews migrated there, and as a Jewish custom, they painted the area where they lived in blue. The color refers to the sky, and consequently “the divine”.
A quiet city, very different from the rest of Morocco, this is a unique destination that looks like a dream or a parallel reality that the photographers have been able to capture perfectly.
