Chefchaouen (13×19)


Chefchaouen is a small village in northern Morocco know for its blue painted buildings. The blue buildings began as a tradition as Jews came to the area and painted their homes and businesses blue. The purplish-blue was a color considered important in Judaism as a symbol of heaven and water. The original color, used to dye ceremonial robes and prayer tassels, was derived from the secretion of a sea snail. The Jewish population has since left Chefchaouen as they were required to practice Islam or leave.
