Half day in Casa

by karamella

Hello,

What can we see in Casa during a half day? Our flight will land at 10.10, so we will be at the hotel by 12.00..(I am planning to visit the Hassan II Mosque next morning before we depart for Rabat) .

Thank you

Half day in Casa

by Desertflyingcarpet

Casablanca has no tourist sights apart from the hassan II mosque,but maybe ya can try wandering around the old medina walls,or take a taxi to the parc de la ligue arabe.It's good place for a walk and watching troops of pigeones around the main fountain.Plus you can always enjoying a relaxing experience in the hammam(Moroccan public bath)It's a must try!!

Have to agree as well, Casablanca is not a great city to see but with an afternoon I would proberly just have a wonder around the medina and some window shopping in city. Other than that Casablanca does not have much to offer.

Agreed - the Hassan II mosque is a must; but otherwise wander through the medina or through the streets and try the local cuisine.

Casa has quite a number of art deco buildings that are worth looking for if you like architecture, also the Habous quartier for its souk and shopping. Theres a recommmended pattiserie there for pretty Casa's best patiserie. A coffee at a beachside cafe is quite nice - but the ultimate is the mosque and allowing enough time - there are tours and I think they are enforced so are you allowing enough time in the morning before you leave for Rabat to do an interior tour? otherwise you might need to do that in the afternoon that you arrive.

The Lonely Planet guidebook is pretty good on things to see in places such as Casa, also the DK eyewitness guide book and the Footprints guidebook.
Have an excellent holiday in Morocco!

Yes, forgot to mention that to see the interior of the mosque (a must) you need to join a tour. They are 9, 10, 11am & 2pm Sat - Thurs. (lonely planet 9th edition 2009) and all visitors must be respecfully attired.

I liked the colonial-style square Muhammad V with a number of administrative buildings and the crumbling French cathedral on the side. You can climb the cathedral towers for a view of the city and the ocean; it's actually one of the few places in the large Moroccan cities where one can enjoy a view from above. It's actually quite a scary place up there because there are no railings and one can imagine falling down by tipping over the 60-70cm high stone walls of the passageway around the two towers.
Apart from that Casablanca offers few great sights in the city. The medina is nice, but nothing compared to the historical ones you'll probably see in the other cities. And if you could try to squeeze the visit to the mosque in the early afternoon, you can leave for Rabat already in the early morning and enjoy the beautiful capital city and Sale across the river.
That said, if this is your first time in Morocco, you might find Casablanca much more interesting that we try to present it to you.

Enjoy your trip

Travel Tips for Casablanca

Hassan II Mosque

by Alice-Kees

The most important sight of Casablanca is undoubtly the Hassan II Mosque which is world's largest mosque. It's located on the shoreline and building was finished in the early 90's. At night the mosque is beautifully lit.

I don't remember the name of...

by maxovna

I don't remember the name of this square, but from it a pedestrian street with plenty of shops starts. In the middle of the square there is a fountain with a strange pink construction in the middle. Besides, in this square you can find some fish restaurants. The food there is said to be delicious.

Haggle!!!

by atifkazi

Well, i dont know where to put this; it goes under Local Customs and General Tips:

If you are at the market, or just at a shop

Do the following:

1) Examine the product, you are to buy, have a look around.

2) If you like the product find the price

3) Remember to Haggle!

4) Say if the person gives u a price
Take an example of: 100 Moroccan Dirhams,
You want a lower price!!, YOU DO!!!!, HAGGLE!!, IT DOESNT MAKE YOU CHEAP, IT MAKES SMART!!!, You can do it hear so DO IT!!. So you say 65, and the trader says 90, you say 70, he says 86, you say, final at 72, he wil go down to in the 70 region. i.e. 77 You then meet at 74, say that is your final, the trader should meet you there.

5) Be Happy, and Haggle!, GO ON!!, I come from a culture of Haggling at the market in my native country. Its so sad, that you cant do that in England :(.

Cathedrale Sacre Coeur

by matcrazy1

The Sacre Coeur Cathedral, placed on the edge of the Parc de la Ligue Arabe, reflects the best of the more adventurous architectural products of the art deco era.
This cathedral was built in 1930. It's rather unusual, HUGE building in the heart of muslim city.

I've found the cathedral neglected and it was closed when I was there. As I remember well the cathedral served as a school. Hmm... some hidden parts of the huge building, I walked around, served as a an outdoor toilet/restroom for some locals.

You wouldn/t expect such...

by pjallittle


You wouldn/t expect such verdant fields in what seems to be such a hot and arid country. The coastal city Tangier is unlike the rest, there is an element of moisture here, it is cooler in the evenings.

This is a private pasture, note the crushed rock pile which the farmer is laying out as a road. He and his family have a view of the backside of the city.
