The first evocation of the name of this city refers us to this famous masterpiece of American cinema, but it must be understood that since then the romanticism of this city has faded.
Casablanca is today the economic capital of the kingdom. Populated by about 5 million inhabitants, it is the largest city in the country.
Around the 7th century, the city was a small Berber village. Its strategic position quickly attracted the attention of foreign powers. It was not until the 20th century that Casablanca would experience the greatest change under the French protectorate. Indeed, the resident governor of the colonial power in charge decided to make it an economic core. For the next 40 years, the most motivated architects worked on huge building projects and even after independence in 1956, Casablanca continued to expand.
Today you will find the remains of an Arts Deco architecture in the most modern city of Morocco. During the reign of Hassan II, one of the largest mosques in the world that bears the name of the monarch was built on the shores of the Atlantic. Visiting this impressive monument will allow you to discover the typical Moorish style and the magic of detail.
Casablanca is still the economic lung of the country, renovating several times, it remains one of the largest cities on the continent.
