Arriving Casablanca on a cruise

by vivhayes

We will be arriving in Casablanca in January on a cruise and will have a few hours to have a look round. Does anyone know if you can walk from the cruise terminal into the centre. We don't mind walking up to about a mile if it is likely to be safe to do so rather than go on an over-priced shuttle bus. Do you have to pay admittance fees to any of the places you can visit? Will they take Euros or will we need to get some Moroccan money? It is difficult knowing how much to get - we will be in Agadir for half a day as well so will probably need to get some.

Re: Arriving Casablanca on a cruise

It has been a year since we have been there on a cruise. The port is quite a ways from the areas that you might be interested in visiting. My suggestion for you is to team with another couple, grab a cab (they are pretty inexpensive), I think we used us dollars (euros as well) and we took it to the bazaar which we really didn't feel uncomfortable at all. the bazaar is outstanding and can take several hours to see it all. I wish I could remember the cost of the cab, just not sure, but I know it was way less expensive than a ship shuttle. Around the bazaar there are lots of little restaurants and small shops and big stores, enjoy. and by the way it seemed very safe to us and we are in our sixties

Thanks for the information. Sounds like it will be too far to walk. Will have to decide whether to book the shuttle or get a taxi. Maybe we will get friendly with someone on the cruise.

Travel Tips for Casablanca

In its general configuration,...

by khalid_2

In its general configuration, the Mosque Hassan II appears under the shape of a vast complex 200 metres long on 100 metres wide and 60 metres high . The structures of the whole mosque are in reinforced concrete dressed in decorations stemming from the Moroccan craft. Facades outsides are dressed(taken on) in stone marble quarry decorated with zelliges, with brass, with titanium, with stucco and with green and black marble for the colonnades of the médersa. Technical index card

The craft



The construction of the Mosque Hassan II joins in a vast project of urban organization. This immense complex includes four different zones distributed in the following way :


Zone1 : the main building(ship) including the room of prayers, the minaret, the médersa, and the hammans with an independent access;

Zone2 : parkings ;

Zone3 : the undercrossing by tunnel ;

Zone4 : a Museum and a library ;

Zone5 : Cleanup and organization of the Bay(berry).

This gigantic work allowed to gain(win) on the sea a surface of 12 hectares. The foundations required 26 000 m3 of the concrete and 59 000 m3 of the rocks to fight against the swell.
In the tradition of the Arabian - Andalusian monumental art, the Mosque Hassan II shines with the ornamentation of its impressive outside and internal surfaces. Jewel of the Moroccan craft, the set(group) is completely decorated with polychromatic zelliges in geometrical composition, with chiselled plaster, with marble, with sculptured and painted wood.
Technical index card

The craft



The unusual proportions where the decoration should carry(wear) high and wide motives which for centuries tended to occupy more reduced surfaces, obliged the bosses artisans to double ingenuity.

So this magnificent challenge allowed in particular a flourish of the traditional Moroccan arts as show of it the pieces of zellige, in colours more brilliant and brilliant than of custom, which dress(take on) the outside facade of the minaret, or still the wooden dome of cedar and beech so finely chiselled and decorated with the ouvrante roof of the room of prayers.

Impressive by the wealth of its decorations, the Mosque Hassan II is also it by the nobility of the materials of the outside covers chosen to challenge the time: triumph gates in titanium and bronze, travertin sculptured by facades with inlay of mosaics in the hollow of the motives to stress the relief of it, the marble tiled floors, and granite. For the construction of the building(ship) including the room of prayers, the minaret and the médersa, 8 cranes from 220 tons to the square meter and 12 mobile cranes were installed(settled). Technical index card

The craft




The room of prayer being able to shelter 25 000 persons occupy a surface of 20 000 m2 .

The minaret is of a total height of 210 m with an influence on the ground of 625 m2 .

The médersa, the hemispherical building(ship) east of the room of the prayers, includes :

A basement and a parking of a surface of 4 600 m2 ;

A first floor of a surface of 4 000 m2 .

Hammans contains a basement of 6 000 m2 and a gallery in first floor of 2 000 m2 . the Mosque Hassan II: Leader of work of the sacred art, the Mosque Hassan II can be considered as the honoring the most remarkable depiction to Allah during the 20-th century. Baptized by the name of her founder, she owed be as high as the aspiration of the sovereign who declared in 1986:

' I want that there is a big and beautiful realization of which Casablanca could be proud till the end of times. I want that is built in sea border, a magnificent God's house, a Mosque the high minaret of which will indicate the voice(vote) of the safety, that is Allah's road, to any vessel from the west '

Inaugurated in 1993, the Mosque, conceived by the architect Michel Pinseau, is one of the biggest mosques of the world today. Being able to welcome up to 100 000 believers(regular customers), she(it) raises the highest minaret of the highest world in 210 metres.

Architectural exploit, its realization required the appeal to an ultramodern technology which joined skilfully to the Moroccan craft. This one is omnipresent in the compositions of sculptured wood, plaster, or zellige.

The Mosque Hassan II allowed so the fusion of the former(ancient) and of modern looking the day to what is henceforth considered as an inescapable monument of the Islamic art.

HASSAN II GREAT MOSQUE...

by LysDor

The hall's surface is 200X100m, it's 65 meters high, can accomodate 25.000 people, 5.000 of those are women - only allowed to the galleries.The cedar and beech wood lining parts of the central ceiling and the side aisles, as well as the galleries reserved for women, was painted with reddish tones to contrast with the pastel colours of the stucco.

I've written down some more...

by Krystynn

I've written down some more tips which you may find interesting...

If you can, try and carry a few colorful postcards/ photos from home and give your new found FRIENDS in
Morocco a glimpse of where you live! I said - FRIENDS - and not those guys that you met at the bar last night, ya know? :-))

This is strictly for the ladies: IF you wish to discourage unwanted MALE advances and attention
here in Morocco, I can't think of a better ploy than to bring along say, a Chinese language magazine! Or if you're from the USA or Europe, just buy any other language magazines you can lay your hands on so long
as it's NOT in FRENCH, ya know? :-) Then when someone tries to pick you up, PRETEND that you don't
understand a word of English and FRENCH! And continue reading your magazine! Believe me, Moroccan men find Caucasian and Oriental women VERY fascinating and will not hesitate to tail you.

(P.S. If you do read and speak Chinese or any other foreign languages...all the better. In this case, you don't even have to pretend!).

Mosque Mohammed V

by matcrazy1

Mosque Mohammed V is located close to La Nouvelle Medina (Quartier des Habous) in a square: Place de le Mosque.

It was easy to find out because of its tall minaret which served me as an orientation point. Usuful especially for tourists without a good map and looking for their car/bus parked somewhere there haha. By the way I had got a good map (by Michelin, was it the same company which produced tires? :-)

Air France

by iaint

Gold star to AF.

In the middle of the worst December weather Scotland & France had seen for years, flights were being cancelled and delayed all over. I expected the worst as I headed for Edinburgh Airport at 6.30am with the temperature at -3c and lots of snow on the car.

They got me all the way to Casa right on time! Both flights!

Plus, on the Paris - Casa flight the meal was a great 4 course lunch. Smoked salmon salad, then poached salmon, cheese and dessert. It's a long time since I've had such a good feed on a plane. Maybe because it's intercontinental?
