In Casablanca there is more to see than the stark contrasts which first hit visitors when they arrive. It is a city sitting on the edge of modernity, European in style yet still pulled into Moroccan history. There is so much to discover!
Architecture: Architecture is a curious yet alluring mix of Art Deco, Hispanic, and Moorish styles. There are two faces of Casablanca: the commercial side with office buildings, wide boulevards that carry the names of Moroccan kings and world leaders and the innate side, the medina with its winding streets and buzzing marketplaces.
Hassan II Mosque: Michel Pinseau, a French architect, designed the Hassan II Mosque, one of the city’s most glorified monuments. In Casablanca, architecture overpowers the list of must-see sights, so you better bring your camera!
Moroccan cuisine: Moroccan cuisine is one with many flavours and influences from outside cultures. It is a mix of French, Arab, Mediterranean, Moorish and Berber. The key to Moroccan cooking is the spice. Main dishes that are available at any restaurant serving local foods are couscous, pastilla (meat pie), tajine (stew with lamb and seasonal fruits and vegetables), tanjia, and harira (chickpea and lentil soup).
