Known for its blue painted houses in old town, leather and weaving workshops, Chefchaouen is a city located in the Rif mountains of northwest Morocco. Besides the blue streets, Chefchauoen is a popular tourist destination for its hashish. The reason behind blue paiinted walls is that during the Spanish Inquisition thousands of Jews fled Europe so they were not forced into Christianity. They ended up settling in Chefchaouen and painted all the walls blue, the color of divinity in Judaism.
