Colourful weekends

You won’t need to put on rose-tinted glasses in Petra – it’s one of a select few colour-inspired locations where you can experience a full-spectrum view of the world

23 MOROCCO’S BLUE CITY

The citizens of Chefchaouen wake up every day feeling blue, and it’s no bad thing. This 500-year-old ‘blue city’ in the Rif Mountains of northern Morocco has a look that’s almost unique in the world, with walls, doors, shutters and even the cobblestones painted the colour of a dazzling sky. The medina (old town) is intricate enough to get pleasantly lost in (the blue adds to the hallucinatory effect), but is more manageably sized and less crowded than those of Marrakesh and Fez. ‘Chaouen’ – as it’s often abbreviated – is short on stand-alone sights, but has many cafés and artisan shops to stumble upon; woven rugs and blankets are the highlights of local handicrafts. The town is also a base for hikes in the mountains. The forests and villages of Talassemtane and Bouhachem National Parks are close at hand, and local guides can help walkers to enjoy the best in rural hospitality.
