Casablanca Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences
Famed as the setting of the classic 1942 film of the same name, Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city. Located in western Morocco on the Atlantic Ocean, Casablanca is the country’s main port as well as the economic and business centre to be experienced on Morocco vacations.
What started as a small Berber fishing village, Casablanca became a strategic port for the likes of the Phoenicians and the Romans. The Portuguese destroyed and then rebuilt the city, inhabiting it until an earthquake devastated the area in 1755. During the era of French colonialism at the beginning of the 20th century, Casablanca witnessed rapid expansion and developed into one of Africa’s largest cities.
Casablanca is known for its unique architecture, a byproduct of being a French protectorate. Mauresque is a blend of traditional Moroccan designs with European styles of the early 20th century. A modern architectural attraction in Casablanca is the Hassan II Mosque designed by French architect Michel Pinseau. With room for 25,000 people inside and a further 80,000 in the courtyard, the mosque is one of the largest in the world. Built by over 6,000 Moroccan craftsmen and artisans using local materials, the mosque was completed in 1993.
Modern Casablanca is a place where the West meets and coexists with Arabic traditions on a molrocco tour. A lively metropolis, it is the most liberal of Morocco’s cities and its citizens are more open to Western ways than their neighbours which will be experienced on a Morocco vacation package.
