Rather a circuitous route from the main town taking you through the local graveyard & round the hillside. Sadly the mosque itself was shuttered & seemingly unattended so the chance to view inside was denied. However the view afforded across the blue town is worth...More

We had missed the sunset from the Spanish Mosque, so we went for the sunrise instead. The hike up to the mosque was almost as enjoyable as the view from the top. Very relaxing and a gorgeous place to see the city!

Lovely walk and great view. This would rate 5 stars if not for the annoying locals. It seems like every review I write boils down to the locals ruining every tourist attraction. There seems to be very little appreciation for the benefits and money tourism...More

Nice way to get exercise and relax at the top. Fresh orange juice was most welcome. Great views. A man was playing the guitar - which was nice

Get your timelapse out as this is awesome for sunset. The lights coming on add a great effect to a timelapse. It's an easy 30 minute walk uphill.

great place to see sunset over there if you r going to spend a night in Chefchaouen. (friendly suggestion: go to bathroom before you climb up to the church and wait for the sunset)

Very popular place to sit and watch the town below, lovely at sunrise and presumably sunset. Steepish hill to get up though.

Worth heading up to the mosque if you have time. It is an easy climb and offers great views of the town.
