chefchaouen, or Chaouen, is a city in the Rif Mountains of northwest Morocco. It's known for the striking, variously hued blue-washed buildings of its old town. Leather and weaving workshops line its steep cobbled lanes. In the shady main square of Uta el Hammam is the red-walled casbah, a 15th-century fortress and dungeon with ethnographic and art exhibits. The octagonal minaret of the Great Mosque rises nearby.
