Chefchaouen enjoys a pleasant summer season owing to its altitude with the average temperature at 28°C. Winters are cold and maximum rainfall occurs during this period; the town may also get snowfall occasionally.
The town came up, 500 years ago, when a fortress was built here by the Moors to protect them from Portugese invasion. Tombs of some saints in the vicinity also ... More made it popular with pilgrims.
Chefchaouen literally means horns; the town was thus christened because of the two mountain tops that form the backdrop of the town and resemble the horns of a goat!
