Blue Cities

With all the Hollywood brouhaha surrounding the Spanish city of Juzcar, one would almost forget that other cities have been blue for ages. Take the ancient city of Chefchaouen for instance. Chefchaouen is a gorgeous city in northeastern Morocco. It is the main city of the province with the same name. It was founded by the Moorish exiles from Spain in 1492 and lies near the Rif Mountains. Its blue-rinsed houses and buildings is a tradition that comes from the town's former Jewish population.
