Casablanca is a curious contrast of modernity and antiquity. Its history began as being a Berber town with an important port. The name of Casablanca was offered by the Portuguese when destroyed the port and built a new city. Being bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the city has always been a strategic place not just in Morocco, but in the entire Maghreb region. Today, Casablanca is the biggest city of Morocco and the most important economic center of the country.
Casablanca is also famous for having the tallest minaret mosque in the world, the Hassan II Mosque. The mosque is a unique jewel of Morocco, having an impressive architecture done by the best craftsmen. It’s one of the few mosques in Morocco that can be visited by both men and women. Other important attractions in Casablanca are the Old Medina, Ain Diab Corniche beach and the central Post Office.
