Worth it!

Very interesting to walk around and explore with interesting gardens and stunning views from the towers. Definitely worth the entry fee to go and see.

Kasbah is located In the center of the medina. It has quirky hours - up to the lady showing up to sell the entry tickets. The kasbah was constructed by Morocco's greatest builder, Sultan Moulay Ismail. It served as a prison in which you are able to walk around - we were told by our guide that the people brought...

The exhibits are poorly set up and organized. Descriptions are only in Spanish. The only thing worth going to this museum for is the view and photo op from the tower.

As most of the reviews make it apparent, it's a very basic museum with no English information. Good for whiling away 30 (at a push 60) minutes. Hadn't previously used Google's Translate using my cellphone camera as the input - worked like a charm (mostly!). The views aren't bad, but if you don't mind a bit of a walk, rather... More

This is located off of the main square in Chefchaouen. It was nice to step into the quiet garden to escape the activity of the Plaza Outa el Hammam. The tower afforded a great view of the whole picturesque village of Chefchaouen.

For a minimal fee (about 10 dirhams), you can wander through the old fortress and get stunning shots of the beautiful blue city. Captions to the museum exhibits are in French and Arabic. Go about 30 minutes before sunset to catch the optimal golden light.

Beautiful but small, also all information is in Arabic or Spanish, so if you don't speak one of those languages you can't read any of it. The price is super low and it's nice to just take a look. Stunning views!

A minimal entry fee gives you a well preserved Kasbah, with well kept garden and incredible views. Worth a trip inside f you are exploring the old city of Chefchaouen
