… translates as ‘the blue pearl’ …


… an old Berber town perched in the
Rif Mountains in the northwest of Morocco …


… there are numerous explanations why it is blue –
represents the blue sea,
scares away the mosquitoes,
painted by the Jews escaping the Spanish Inquisition
but no one really seems to know why …


… whatever the reason
it is a beautiful and magical place to visit …


… set within a stunning landscape …


… and so much greener than I had imagined
but maybe that was because of the time of year …
