Day 1: Departure from Marrakech to To Middle Atlas And Cedar Forest

In this day trip you will also discover Azrou, a Berber village built at an altitude of 1250 m with houses of Berber tribes and Ifran the small Switzerland of Morocco.

Ifran:

It is a small town surrounded by mountains of 1650 meters above sea level. It was built in 1930, with a European style and a pleasant atmosphere all year long, ideal for breathing fresh air.

Its construction by the French, started in 1929 as a seaside resort was inspired by alpine architecture.

It has a large Royal Palace, Al Akhawayn University, a military school and many luxury villas that are dotted around the city with well maintained trees and driveways. It is a city of entertainment for summer and winter sports.

In the center is a lake surrounded by forests, next to which it is possible to contemplate the Ifrane Lion, a stone sculpture that tourists like to photograph.

In remembrance of the protectorate, there are still original houses, the post office and the church.

The district of Ville Jardin, of the colonial era (called Riad), has summer houses and tourist complexes.

AZROU:

It is a white city and its inhabitants are welcoming. In the first place, we can point out the place that stands out for its artisan shops and cafes. Next to it is a small medina with houses with green doors and windows; you can find a souk of carpets, wooden objects and spices, as well as the remains of a kasbah of the seventeenth century. In front of the square, you can admire the Hassan II Mosque, with its cedar roof. In front of it is a particular rock that gave its name to the city. The place is frequented by young people and offers incredible panoramas. Azrou has an important cottage industry of cedar wood. Do not forget the carpets of the Atlas. If you are interested in handicrafts, consider visiting the handicraft center located on the Khenifra road.
