Visit Talassemtane National Park
Officially part of the Mediterranean Intercontinental Biosphere Reserve, Talassemtane Park covers an area of 59 hectares.
The park is home to more than 50 mammals such as monkeys, otters and genets, as well as more than 100 species of birds such as the golden eagle.

From Chefchaouen to Talassemtane Park
Most guides will take you to Ras El Ma, either from a meeting point in El Haouta Square, or from Outa El Hamma Square. In any case, the discovery of the park will usually start from Ras El Ma.
You will then find yourself in the wilderness inhabited by many indigenous species. The Talassemtane National Park is an excellent starting point for reaching the highest peak in the province of Chefchaouen and the fascinating Mediterranean coast.
This natural park is the most original ecological entity of the Rif mountain range and of Morocco in general, due to the great biodiversity it presents through complexes (fauna and flora).
The mountainous landscape dominates the park, with an important orography and abundant springs. The limestone ridge that forms the relief of the park is the most important aquifer in the Rif.
The park area mainly feeds the Mediterranean catchment areas, with the formation of huge water reservoirs within the limestone massif.
From the park, you can continue your journey to one of the wonderful beaches of the region, as well as explore the Mediterranean coast through its paradisiacal beaches close to the city of Chefchaouen
