What you'll do

Watching the sunset over Chefchaouen from the Spanish Mosque is a must! Join me as we head off the tourist trail on a bit of an adventure. We will explore some of the quieter parts of the old medina as we make our way uphill to the very top of the medina. Here we go up inside one of the wall turrets before walk alongside the median wall. Stopping for photos and to take in the view we then head down a a steep path to Ras el Maa (the stream where we can see traditional laundry, the head of the river) and a quick juice stop. Continuing on, after a short downhill repreive, we will then head uphill to the Spanish Mosque via a local path I know, passing through an old cemetery, views over the town and surrounding countryside and you may even pass through herds of sheep, goats & see a donkey if youre lucky. Of course, stopping regularly to take in the spectacular views over Chaouen from a different perspective. We will arrive at the Spanish Mosque with plenty of time to sit and take in the breathtaking views, pose for photos, while watching the sunset. Snap away as the light changes, rays appear and the sun sets on the Rif Mountains above. We will slowly wander back down via the main well lit track, stopping to hear the sunset Prayer to call echo across the valley. If youre after a little bit of adventure to a must see place, come along with us!
