Casablanca is a large and modern city, where, once, someone made a film that, for reasons that I couldn't really understand in the 97 times that I saw it, became very famous.
If you are thinking in the film scenery, you may find a reconstructed bar, an area they say that it was in the movie, and... that's it. If you want to meet Morocco, then the best you have is the airport and railway station.
But if you appreciate big and busy cities, then that's your place. And here and there, the real Morocco comes to surface.
CASABLANCA is a mixture of occidental modern cities where the oriental exotism is still present. CASA, as everyone call it, is the 5th largest city of the African continent.
Yes it's very modern and is located nearby the seashore.
The picture is from my hotel window towards the harbor!
Favorite thing: 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.
