  • Old Medina

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Casablanca Things to Do

    The old part of Casablanca, within a set of city walls and known as the Medina, is surprisingly easy to miss. You could wander around the city centre for a few hours, then take a taxi out to the big mosque and the seaside, and not realise that the medina exists. It certainly doesn't compare to other medinas in places like Fes or Marrakesh, or even...

  • La Corniche

    Casablanca Things to Do

    After leaving Fes my next destination was Marrakesh, rather a long six-hour train journey, so I decided to break it in Casablanca and as the weather was hot I could rest on the Corniche beach for a day trip on the tram.

    I'm usually an old building fan, so in the Arab World, I generally get my kicks in the medinas where the oldest and most interesting quarters are found, and hardly visit the new modern parts of town. However, in Casablanca, the modern city is a major attraction for anyone with an interest in Art Deco or Mauresque architecture. Some of the buildings...

  • Cathédrale de Sacré-Coeur

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Casablanca Things to Do

    Just off the square, look out for two sparkling white towers and a spiky roof...this is the Cathedrale du Sacre Coeur, an odd yet beautiful Moroccan-colonial building. The first time I came to visit, the gates were locked and I could only admire the building from the outside (still worth seeing for the architecture). But it impressed me enough to...
