Explore Chefchaouen’s Overwhelming Kasbah
Taking a peek into the past especially in Morocco is one of the incredible moments that mesmerize everyone. Chefchaouen Kasbah is a national historical fortress and monument built in 1471 by Mulay Ali Ben Mussa Ben Rached (the founder of Chefchaouen). The visitors who come to Chefchaouen usually have some bewilderment or want to know what is the purpose behind building this defensive fortress. In the first place, this rampart was a refuge to some Muslims and Jewish, and it played a powerful influence during that time.
This heavily restored Kasbah has an interesting small ethnographic museum, jail, lovely garden and even an art gallery which encourages the work of the local artists. From there you can enjoy various fascinating views of the old Chefchaouen, such as the plaza and kasbah tower; these views over the Medina are usually a delight.
