Morocco — Ifrane

On the way to Marrakesh is a stop in Ifrane, a mountain resort built by the French in 1929 as a colonial retreat that is also known as Little Switzerland. Due to its elevation, the town experiences snow during the winter and maintains a cool climate during the summer. Ifrane is also the place where the lowest temperature was ever recorded in Africa in 1935. Its quiet streets make for a marked difference from the hussle and bussle of Fez.
