The former spanish territory of Ifni is a little place situated in the Moroccan west coast in the province of Tiznit, 300 kms away from Lanzarote Island (Spanish Canary Islands). Is a desert region of 1.500 sq km. whose inhabitants (berbers) live thanks to the subsistence agriculture and the cattle growing. Fishing is very important in the coastal areas. The capital city was Sidi Ifni.
Sidi Ifni is the only city in the former spanish province of Ifni. The first spanish settlement in this region was the fishing port of Santa Cruz de la Mar Pequeña, that was set up in 1476 where later was built the city of Sidi Ifni. Then, in 1524 was abandonned due to the attacks of the berber tribes who populated the area. But, in 1860 after the Africa War between Spain and Morocco the territory (an area that comprises till Agadir)returned to the Spanish Government. But until 1934 there was no real occupation of the territory. Between 1958 and 1969, Ifni became a spanish province. In 1969 Spain gave back Ifni to Morocco.
All the location names that I have written and I will write in this page are the old ones. I do this in this way because is easier for me, and I believe that if you had been there in that times it will help you for remembering. This are the names that we used and as we wrote when this territory was part of Spain.
