The green oasis in the kasbah Oct 24, 2013
You find the kasbah in Chefchaouen at the main square inside the old medina. So finding the place is hardly a problem - I am sure every visitor to Chefchaouen will get here eventually. It’s a typically - though a bit small - walled fortress which you’ll find many places around Morocco. You can see the outside of the kasbah for free from the square but it is well worth the 10 Dirham (€1) to go inside and have a closer look at the place.

At the center of the kasbah is a big green garden which is the green hard of the medina - there are not many other green bushes and trees inside the walls of the medina. There are a small museum with a few local costumes’ and other artifacts on display - but the main attraction of the kasbah is the structure itself which you can see more clearly from the inside than the outside.

You can go up in one of the towers from where you have a good view of the medina and of the nearby hills.
