Casablanca - Attractions


Time Off: Things to Do and See in Casablanca

Casablanca is rapidly developing into a modern industrial success story. The largest city in Morocco, its centre is impressive, with large boulevards and tall, white, well-kept buildings. The old city is more reminiscent of the Casablanca of Bergman and Bogart; a much smaller area with older houses and a good market. Certain landmarks are particularly beautiful, such as the Hassan II Mosque, which is well worth a visit.

Casablanca's Main Attractions

Hassan II MosqueHassan II Mosque
Boulevard Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah, Casablanca

This immense mosque was commissioned as a gift to King Hassan II for his 60th birthday in 1989. Inaugurated in 1993, it contains a museum, steam baths, a library, a Koranic school and conference facilities. The largest mosque outside Saudi Arabia it houses up to 25,000 worshippers. With a 175-metre (575-foot) minaret, it is the tallest religious structure in the world. An eastern-facing laser, on top of the minaret, indicates the direction of Mecca. Special guided tours are available for non-Muslims throughout the day.

Old MedinaOld Medina
Central Casablanca

This is the original Arab town, partly enclosed by the old wall. It is a maze of narrow streets and whitewashed brick or stone houses, full of shops with everything imaginable for sale.

The PortThe Port
Central Casablanca

Morocco's biggest and busiest port and one of the largest on the African continent. With a number of deepwater quays, the port abounds with shipping from oil tankers to cruise liners. Fishing is plentiful as are pleasure boats. Centre 2000, a large shopping complex, is worth visiting.

Place Mohamed VPlace Mohamed V
Central Casablanca

The heart of the city; the square is flanked by truly splendid French colonial architecture, housing a number of government and public offices, set around a central fountain that spurts jets of multicoloured water.

New MedinaNew Medina
South Casablanca

This area, also known as the Quartier des Habous or 'District of Holy Men', is south of the city and was built by the French in an attempt to solve the housing problems of the 1930s. The endeavour to blend traditional Moroccan architecture with modern urban planning has proved to be surprisingly successful.

The MaraboutThe Marabout
Casablanca

This is one of many religious sites in Morocco, thought to be the burial place of holy men. These picturesque, white-domed tombs are a few miles outside the city, on a little rocky island just off the beach that can only be reached at low tide. Many pilgrims make their way here, as it is believed the site possesses great spiritual healing powers.

Ville Nouvelle
Casablanca

This area offers some of the best examples of Mauresque architecture anywhere in the city.

Borj Sidi Mohammed Ben AbdallahBorj Sidi Mohammed Ben Abdallah

This imposing 18th-century fort at the lower end of Old Medina was built to resist raids from the Portuguese.

The Grand MosqueThe Grand Mosque
