Things to do in  Casablanca

Welcome to Casablanca

Although far removed from Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman’s classic depiction of the city, modern-day Casablanca is indeed well-suited for romance, adventure, and nightlife. Thanks largely to an Atlantic port that attracts global businesses to its shores, Casablanca is known as one of the largest and most economically important cities in Africa. However, the city’s charms are found not in its skyscrapers, but in its distinct blend of cultures. Get oriented on a half-day sightseeing tour around this alluring city. You’ll stop by its most popular attractions, such as Mohammed V Square, Hassan II Mosque, the Ain Diab Corniche, and Notre Dame de Lourdes Cathedral. After your tour, revisit your favorite sites, then take some time to relax in a café with a thick coffee or mint tea. Guided tours mean day trips to Morocco's nearby imperial cities are feasible as well. The capital city of Rabat, known for its blend of French and Islamic heritage, is just an hour’s drive down the coast. Or join a tour heading 2.5-hours inland to the exotic city of Marrakech (aka the Rose City), where your guide will lead you through maze-like streets in search of mosques, palaces, and musicians; or the historic walled city of Fez, three hours from Casablanca, where you you'll find the religious and architectural heart of Morocco.

Top 9 attractions in Casablanca

Hassan II Mosque

With its regal cliff-top perch overlooking the ocean and a soaring 210-meter high minaret (the world’s highest) that shines a beam toward Mecca during the evening hours, everything about the Hassan II Mosque is grandiose. The magnificent mosque is among the largest in the world, with space for up to 100,000 worshippers.More

Old Medina of Casablanca (Ancienne Medina)

In the north of the city between the port and the seafront Hassan II Mosque, the Old Medina of Casablanca contains the last vestiges of pre-20th century Casablanca. Though the modern city sprawls in every direction, the historic quarter remains a maze of alleyways and a vast souk, tucked in by the remnants of ancient walls.More

Royal Palace of Casablanca

A masterpiece of Islamic architecture, surrounded by picturesque orange groves and elaborate water features, the Royal Palace of Casablanca is a suitably grand abode for the King of Morocco when he’s in town. Located in the Habous Quarter of the city’s New Medina, this is the King’s principal Casablancan residence and throughout the year hosts royal receptions.More

Mohammed V Square (Place Mohammed V)

Flanked by Casablanca’s most striking architecture, Mohammed V Square forms the central hub of the city’s buzzy new town. Laid out in the early 20th century and named in honor of the former Sultan, the plaza centers around a monumental fountain, dramatically lit up in the evening hours.More

Quartier Habous (New Medina)

Habous Quarter in southeastern Casablanca is one of the city’s most atmospheric districts. French colonizers in the 1920s created the area and small tree-lined squares, neat alleyways, elegant arcades, and a curious mix of French colonial buildings and traditional Maghrebi architecture still remain. Throughout, small souks sell handicrafts and leather goods.More

La Corniche

The city’s most fashionable suburb, Ain Diab Corniche is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. The district is bisected by Corniche Boulevard, from the Hassan II Mosque in the east to the El-Hank Lighthouse in the west, but the main attraction is the scenic promenade along the Casablanca seafront where everyone comes for at least a stroll.More

Casablanca Central Market (Marché Central de Casablanca)

Located along the busy shopping street of Mohammed V Boulevard, Marché Central de Casablanca is the city’s main market. Crammed with locals, the daily market is a fascinating place for tourists to get a taste of local culture, while picking up bargains on everything from food to fresh flowers and traditional clothing.More

Église Notre Dame de Lourdes

All too often overshadowed by the magnificence of the Hassan II Mosque, the Notre Dame de Lourdes Cathedral is an important center of worship for Morocco’s Roman Catholic population and serves as a striking example of Casablanca’s modern architecture.More

United Nations Square (Place des Nations Unies)

Located at the gateway between the historic Old Medina and the new Casablanca built during the 20th-century French rule, United Nations Place is the city’s busiest public squares. The futuristic steel lattice cupola, designed by jean Francois Zevaco, marks the pedestrian underpass, where the city’s principal boulevards intersect.More
