Sidi Ifni Day Trip From Taroudant
Sidi Ifni Day Trip From Taroudant has a great stituation on the southern Atlantic coast of Morocco, between the towns of Tiznit and Guelmim, 160 km south of Agadir. Due to its location, Sidi Ifni can be considered as “the Atlantic gateway to the Sahara.
Taking its name from the marabout of the region, Sidi Ifni is the capital of the Ait Baâmrane tribe, famous throughout the country for its resistance and its victory against the Spanish occupier, during the Ifni War in particular where the Spanish had to leave their colonial posts in the region after the attack on all Spanish colonial posts by all sections of the tribe, on the same day and at the same time.
Day Trip to Sidi Ifni From Taroudant
A Hispano-Moroccan treaty of 1767, confirmed by that of 1860, granted Spain “sufficient territory for the foundation of a fishing establishment” in the region of Ifni. The territory was effectively occupied in 1934. Franco had decided to make this enclave, Ifni, a military base and the political center of Spanish West Africa.
With the financial support of Madrid, the city then developed rapidly following a colonial plan with a grid of streets and avenues and an oval-shaped central square around which the main buildings stand: the Spanish consulate, the palace of the governor, the cathedral, and the town hall. The city also has an airport, five cinemas, a casino, hotels, a zoo, and a swimming pool. Up to 15,000 Spanish soldiers will be stationed in Sidi Ifni.
Relative relaxation of relations between Franco and Hassan II and international pressure lead to negotiations which lead to the Treaty of Fez of January 4, 1969, which provides for the end of Spanish sovereignty. Almost all the Spaniards then returned to Spain. Maria Gomez, the last person of Spanish origin not to return, died in 2001.
