What to see in Casablanca
These are the best attractions if you’re in search of what to do in Casablanca:
Hassan II Mosque » Located between the port of Casablanca and Boulevard de la Corniche. This mosque was built on the side of the Atlantic Ocean in 1993, and it is one of the most fascinating that can exist in the world. This is definitely the most visited site in Casablanca among tourists, as its majesty stands out from afar. The minaret, considered one of the highest in the world, is of an imposing height (210 meters). The beauty of every architectural detail that adorns this mosque with fine materials such as marble and cedar wood from the Atlas Mountains, made this building famous all over the world. A standard Casablanca city tour will for sure start visiting its most prominent landmark.
Mahkama du Pasha » This is another of the attractions in Casablanca that will surprise you. The doors of this building deserve you to admire them for several minutes. It is the old Muslim court built back in 1952, with impeccable craftsmanship with majestic engravings in different materials. One day in Casablanca has to include the Mahkama do Pasha palace.
Old Cathedral of the Sacred Heart » Located on Rue d’Alger and Boulevard Rachdi in the Gautier neighborhood. The historic cathedral has been there since the 30s with a fantastic mix of Gothic, art-deco, and Moroccan ornaments that is well worth visiting. A Casablanca sightseeing day usually always include a visit to this church.
The old Medina of Casablanca » Unfortunately the old Medina is one of the least popular in the country, as it is inevitably compared to medinas in other cities in Morocco. But in reality, Casablanca things to do will not be complete if you don’t visit the medina. For many, it lacks the same old atmosphere since within this Medina you will find mainly a residential area, cafes, and restaurants. In terms of choosing Casablanca activities or things to do, we suggest you visit the old medina because you will surely find something that will surprise you and places with a very pleasant atmosphere. Among them is the Sqala, one of the most popular restaurants with a striking garden. The Bab Marrakech entrance is one of the most popular because of the clock tower.
Mohammed V Square » This is the most famous square in the city and one of the not to be missed Casablanca attractions. It is surrounded by palm trees and attractive buildings with Moroccan decorations. This square has been recently renovated. The Grand Theater of Casablanca facing the square, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, will surely catch your eye.
Habous (the new Medina) » The French colonial legacy can also be found in this part of Casablanca since it consists of the creation of a medina with Moroccan architecture, but with a more western touch. This area of the city that is on the top list of all Casablanca tourist attractions was built in the 30s by the French.
