Now that there is something you should definitely add to your travel bucket list! Chefchaouen is a surreal town in Morocco’s Rif Mountains. Amidst idyllic valleys and gorgeous hillsides, you can see the place has one very distinct and memorable feature: the color blue. Set against the arid landscape, vast palettes of blue and white adorning the town’s old Spanish and Moorish architecture make it stand out like a sore thumb.

According to historians, the town got its blue tradition by way of Jewish refugees in the 1930s. It’s said that the Jews consider the color blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. Others believe that the shade of blue help repel mosquitoes, who mistake the blue walls as moving water.
