Mysterious Blue Origins …

No one is sure why this little mountain stronghold drenched itself in blue. Some say that it’s a spiritual colour for muslims and jews, while other believe it’s a tribute to the mountain spring that makes the settlement possible in a forbidding landscape. Still others say the colour blue keeps mosquitoes at bay.
