"The White City"

Casablanca Tourism

Casablanca is the most modern and the largest city in Morocco. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, it is also Morocco's chief port. Casablanca displays a magical blend of brilliant architecture, history, culture and sophistication. The city is a bustling metropolis with beautiful palm trees lining the paths and large buildings at every corner.

Like all Moroccan cities, the medina is the main centre of Casablanca. It is one of the largest medinas in Morocco with an eclectic vibe, art-deco buildings and the Hassan II Mosque. The second largest mosque in Africa and the seven largest in the world, the Hassan II Mosque, is the prime attraction of Casablanca. The city's coastline is bordered by beaches offering all sorts of watersports, from jet-skiing to diving and boating.

Casablanca is a master of landscapes and is equally excellent when it comes to food and local culture. European-style sidewalk cafes and French-inspired bakeries are found at every corner of the beautiful palm-lined boulevards. Dive into the old Medina souks and interact with the locals to get the authentic feel of the city, or roam about on the lavish beach of la Corniche to experience the luxury. Casablanca is very different from other Moroccan imperial cities and provides a more authentic, everyday Moroccan experience.
