The Colour Blue

There’s a little town in northern Morocco called Chefchaouen. Not only does it have a rich history and beautiful views, but the town is for some reason painted blue. The entire town.

The colour was said to have been introduced in Chefchaouen by the Jewish refugees in the 1930s who felt that it symbolised sky and heaven (we agree). The colour blue caught on and it might’ve been a good thing as they now get their fair share of visitors pass through to wander the meandering blue streets and snap some amazing photos.

A selection of those photos below:

Love that there’s a random wandering ram. Have you seen so many different shades of blue before?
