Chefchaouen or the blue city is a small town in the north of Morocco, It was founded in 1471 by Jews and Moors escaping from Spain, the name came from a berber word "Ashawen" which refers to "the horns" . The pretty blue city Chefchaouen has eight mosques and many zaouias and marabouts for this reason it considered as a holy town.
