Chances are that you’ve heard of the blue Moroccan city even if  you didn’t know the name of it. Located in the Rif Mountains, just inland from Tangier and Tetouan, this charming city is an arty white washed haven that’s unlike anything in the country. Split between the older eastern side, and the new western side, the city is rapidly expanding its offering while gentrification takes hold yet still holding on to the charm that makes it so special.
