Looks like an amazing, beautiful, unique town of Ifrane in Africa.

Here cedars grow and is… snow. A ski trails and houses, covered with pink tiles, complement the typical European landscape. Ifrane is considered the coldest place in Africa.

The amazing resort is located on the territory of Morocco, a few hours drive by car from Casablanca or Rabat. However, nothing in this Moroccan town no. It is very green and many parks and lakes, pastures, while in winter, the mountains often see snow and people go skiing or sledding.

Ifrane was built by the French in the beginning of the last century during colonization. Most likely they found in the mountains, “a touch of winter” and decided to arrange them in the European style: as a place of rest from the African heat, which drains, and as a reminder of home.
