Moroccans love the Middle Atlas and it’s hard to understand why it’s not as popular with foreign visitors. The contrast with the rest of Morocco is marked: gently rolling green foothills are dotted with attractive lakes, verdant woodlands and picturesque walking trails. The university town of Ifrane was built by the French in the early 20th Century to deliberately emulate an Alpine resort, and the neat chalets and ordered parks seem incongruous after the intensity of somewhere like Fez! Slightly further into the Middle Atlas is the town of Azrou, a Berber town which still has a slightly Alpine feel , and if you visit on a Tuesday you’ll catch one of the largest weekly markets in the area, notable for its carpets.
