City of Casablanca, Morocco

Casablanca is the biggest city in Morocco located on the Atlantic Ocean and was modeled on the city of Marseilles by the French in 1920s. It is the capital of the region of Greater Casablanca and is the principal economic capital, the primary naval base.

It is, however, not the administrative or political capital of the country. Casablanca StadIt is situated in the heart of the Maroc Utile which is the most fertile zone of Morocco as well as a major source of mineral wealth. It is one of the busiest ports in the Maghreb.

There has been rapid development from the times of the French protectorate and it has grown much bigger than Marseilles. It seems like any other European city and before you go to Morocco simple don’t visualize anything at all. It would be an amazing visit for you.

The New town designed by the French architect Henri Prost is the most impressive part of Casablanca and Morocco also. There are several former administrative buildings and modern hotels worth checking out. You can see a combination of Hispano-Mauresque and Art Décor styles here.

The Hassan II Mosque designed by the French architect Michel Pinseau is magnificent. Situated on a promontory looking out at the Atlantic it has room for 25000 worshippers. There is place for 80000 more outside in the courtyard. The minaret of the mosque at 210 meters is supposed to be the worlds tallest.

The Parc de la Ligue Arabe is the city’s largest public park worth a visit. You may also visit the Cathedrale du Sacre Coeur that is on the edge of the park. It showcases the Mauresque architecture splendidly. The old medina is also being renovated and you would always find the wall of the medina, its skala (bastion) and the colonial period clock tower very impressive.

The Jewish Museum is also an important landmark here and is the only one available in the Muslim world. The small beach near Ain Diab is a good one and draws lots of tourist with the variety of beach clubs that are open here.
