Ifrane, Morocco’s “Little Switzerland,” is located on the route from Fes to the Merzouga desert. Specifically, in the Middle Atlas Mountains. Because of its position, it is the coldest city in Morocco, and it attracts a large number of visitors, Moroccans, and outsiders who come to snowboard. Not to add that Ifrane’s structures are built in a really unique manner. In fact, it has a European flavor to it.
Ifrane, with its one-of-a-kind and appropriate weather, is home to a number of important investments. Consider Al Akhawain University, which provides a high level of education and is available to students from all around the world. In addition, there is Lmaamoura, a home where the national soccer team frequently trains. In addition, Ifrane is home to the Atlas lion statue, one of Morocco’s distinctive monuments carved by a German prisoner. The origins of this statue may be traced back to the time when Morocco was administered by France.
France was building a military installation in Ifrane at the time, and they detained a large number of detainees. One of these captives was from Germany, and according to the narrative, France promised him freedom in exchange for doing something unusual and novel. As a result, he sculpted the Atlas lion statue.
