“Casa” - the cosmopolitan, industrial and economic heart of Morocco
Casablanca is the best representation of the modern nation. It is Morocco’s main port and one of the largest financial and business centers and most important cities on the continent.
As the largest city in Morocco, Casablanca offers visitors plenty of international and local culinary experiences, a bustling nightlife, and lots of shopping.
The city’s attractive buildings, which meld French-colonial design and traditional Moroccan style, can be best admired in the downtown district. Explore the Old Medina, a small, traditional walled town for a cultural experience or head to the beachside suburb of Ain Diab to get into the local swing of things. The King Hassan II Mosque is the largest in Morocco (the third largest in the world) and also consists of the tallest minaret in the world. The Parc de la Ligue Arabe is the city’s largest public park and has recently been redeveloped. Or enjoy a walk up and down the Corniche, resting at one of the many ocean-view cafes or restaurants.
The Shrine of Sidi Abderrahman is built on a rock offshore and is only accessible at low tide. The shrine itself is off-limits to non-Muslims, but other visitors are permitted to explore the tiny, Medina-like neighborhood that has sprung up around it.
Casablanca is also conveniently linked to several other cities in Morocco so for those tempted to explore, nearby Rabat or other destinations like Marrakech, Tangier, Fez, Meknes or Oujda are all accessible by train or by air.
Take an Air Mediterranean flight to Casablanca and explore Morocco.
