Spanish Colonial Influence in the Maghreb

The influence of Chefchaouen’s Spanish history is obvious in the beauty of the town. Terracotta tiled homes with inner, tree-laden courtyards, have their roots in Andalusia. The pale blue-washed walls for which Chefchaouen is known was adopted by the Spanish Jewish refugees. Street signs are often in Spanish, in broad contrast to other areas of Morocco, where the French had ruled, and the primary foreign language of the locals remains Spanish.

Profile photo of Jamal Ghanname

I was born in a small Berber village in the Middle Atlas. Interested in all things mathematical and scientific, I received my degree in Information Technology. I was later encouraged by my father to enter into the family’s tourism business, and my future career was born! I've lived in the U.S. where I gained an in-depth understanding of Western culture. Fluent in 4 languages (Arabic, Tamazight Berber, French and English) and fiercely proud of my native country and heritage, I'm a natural ambassador to Morocco. With years of experience under my belt, I have enjoyed driving countless kilometers all over Morocco and taking pictures along the way!
