The following travel photos come from Chefchaouen, Morocco. The city’s name comes from the nearby mountain tops which resemble the two horns of a goat, and is known more by the locals as Chaouen. The word for goat is ‘chaoua’. Spanish is a common language here, since Spain had controlled Chefchaoeun for thirty years.
The doors of Chefchaouen, while often less noticed, each carry a unique and colorful presense (Photo Credit: Anna Groeling).
