Africa has surprising places to visit, among which are not only imposing savannas and mountains, but also some quiet towns, full of shops with the souvenir that best suits your experience. Today, we will talk about some of the most beautiful towns in Africa:
Sidi Bou Said, Tunisia
If on your trip to Tunisia you want to visit an enchanted town, you have Sidi Bou as the first candidate; It is a coastal town located about 20 km from the city of Tunis, it is a romantic and inspiring place and it is probably the most beautiful town in this part of the African territory, it brings together the essence of a typical Mediterranean town, in the image and likeness of the Greek island towns. If you are fond of photography, you can enjoy looking to take the best snapshots that reflect the charm of this beautiful town.
Matmata, lowland village, Tunisia
It is a surprising and most curious place, it is located in the southwest of Tunisia, at an altitude of 600 meters on top of a hill, it is a great tourist attraction for its famous “troglodyte houses”. This construction was excellent to defend against enemies, this was because the rooms were not visible from the outside because they were ventilated through the central courtyard and, as a curious fact, we can tell you that it was made known to the world thanks to the film Star Wars where George Lucas filmed some exteriors of the fictional planet Tatooine. Today, many of these homes have electricity and improvements, although they try to keep them in their original condition.
Assilah, the white coast, Morocco
It is a small fishing village located on the coast of Morocco, southwest of Tangier. In this town, you can see unparalleled views of the Atlantic beaches, white sand dunes and sparse vegetation. It is an ideal place to relax, with that bohemian and cozy touch of each of its corners. Its simplicity speaks for itself, its central square houses its mosque and gives access to the busy streets full of shops and small galleries of Bohemian artists dedicated to painting or local crafts.
Chefchaouen, the bluish city, Morocco
If you want to know a town full of blue constructions, Chefchaouen, hidden in the foothills of the Rif mountains, with its labyrinth of alleys, is probably one of the most pleasant surprises that trips to Morocco offer. To discover it, the best thing you can do is let yourself be carried away by its narrow streets aimlessly and let yourself be seduced by the blue that floods everything and by the smell of its spices. Chaouen is a shopping city and its souk is dotted with shops. You will find all the elements of the typical Moroccan decoration here.
