Highlights of Casablanca
Africa has always been an exotic land. From its vast deserts to it wildlife, it has always been a place to go to if you want something exciting. But even though it has been known as such, the place is still filled with culture. Meet Casablanca. It is the largest city in Morocco, located in the central-western part of Morocco bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Casablanca is Morocco’s chief port and one of the largest financial centers on the continent. Casablanca is considered the economic and business center of Morocco, although the national political capital is Rabat.
The area which is today Casablanca was founded and settled by Berbers by at least the seventh century BC. In the early 15th century, the town became an independent state once again. It emerged as a safe harbour for pirates and privateers, leading to it being targeted by the Portuguese. They bombarded the town which led to its destruction in 1468. Later, in the 19th century, the area’s population began to grow as it became a major supplier of wool to the booming textile industry in Britain. Consequently shipping traffic increased. By the 1860s, Casablanca had a population of round 5,000 residents, and it grew to around 10,000 by the late 1880s. During the 1940s and 1950s, Casablanca was a major center of anti-French rioting. Then, on 25 December 1953 (Christmas Day), Muhammad Martini orchestrated a bombing of Casablanca’s Central Market. This was in response to the forced exile of Sultan Muhammad V and the royal family on 20 August 20 that year.
If you happen to be visiting Casablanca, some historical sites might please your travel needs. Admire the wonderful architecture and detailed mosaics of the Hassan II Mosque from the outside. Moreover be sure to re-visit it after your tour! As you explore, learn interesting facts about Casablanca and its place as Morocco’s largest city and main commercial hub. Head first to the United Nations Square. This is the buzzing heart of Casablanca. Then take in Mohammed V Square and the colours, sights and sounds of the Central Market. Thereafter continue on to the elegant Habous quarter — the new medina. You can view the tree-lined streets designed by the French in the 1920s. Stop to admire the ornate exterior and gates of the Royal Palace. There you can see the Mehkma courthouse. Also visit the Cathedral Notre Dame de Lourdes, a striking 1956 church graced with spectacular stained glass windows. Next, you have the Hassan II Mosque. It is Africa’s biggest, and one of the world’s largest mosques, built in the late 1980s. Marvel at the beautiful façade and hear how it took over 6,000 artisans to carve the wood, granite and marble of the exterior.
For a more cultural side of things, try some of the museums in Casablanca. The Musee Abderrahman Slaoui is an impressive museum made up of a private collection of paintings, fabulous old posters and stunning Moroccan pieces. Whereas the Museum of Moroccan Judaism is a small museum that is a treasure trove of ritual objects and photographs highlighting the daily life of the Jews in Morocco. For a more modern interpretation, one of the nicer museums you will ever get to visit is Villa des Artes. This showcases works from older established to young up and coming artists.
If you are tired of sight-seeing, there are some exciting things to do in the place. Located at the end of La Corniche region is Morocco Mall. One of the biggest shopping centres in Africa. Not only a modern hub, Morocco Mall also offers entertainment for the whole day. On top of the extensive range of shops, anything from H&M to Dior, and a vast range of food options, Morocco Mall also hosts an indoor aquarium complete with a small shark. In addition there is also a fountain display outside, and even an indoor ice skating rink. There really is something for everyone. Moreover for a taste of traditional Morocco, there’s even an indoor souk (market), however traditional shopping is best left to the old medina.
For a taste of luxury and unique beverages, head to the Sky 28. The bar offers guests the chance to sit in a tasteful atmosphere, overlooking the city, and drinking a pricey yet worthy cocktail. Best visited at night while admiring the views of the illuminated city, this is an escape from the hustle and bustle of the old medina and the traditional Moroccan life. There’s even live music to create a chilled and comfortable atmosphere. You can also visit the Old Medina, which could provide a glimpse to the old lifestyle of Morocco.
Visit Casablanca, for a glimpse of the old with a touch of the new. Indulge in the great food, enjoy the sights, and connect with the past.
