Its green gorgeous mountains, narrow streets with white and indigo limewashed buildings, little squares, ornate fountains and houses with elaborately decorated doorways and red tile roofs makes it a lovely town and a great spot for taking photos. The name Chefchaouen is inspired from the shape of the two mountains above the town that look like the horns (chaoua) of a goat.
