Culture and history
A historical maze
If you wish to meet Casablanca locals and stroll through the city’s streets, head to the medina! This historical heart of the city only dates back to the 18th century. The old medina was seriously damaged by an earthquake. When walking through it, you may pass the Grande Mosque, the Sidi el Kairouan sanctuary, the Sqala square and the city’s ramparts.
A mosque that beats all records
The biggest mosque in Morocco boasts a slender minaret - the tallest in the world - rising up into Casablanca’s skyline. Zellige tiles and stucco adorn the religious monument, giving it a traditional Moroccan appeal. This magnificent masterpiece from the 1990s is home to a prayer room, hammam and museum.
A mystic island
All the way to the South of Casablanca, a surprising island rises from the sea. It houses Sidi Abderrahmane’s mausoleum - a marabout with the power to walk on water, as legend has it. Nowadays, fortune tellers are all over the place for palm readings. The small island is far from peaceful and hordes of people looking for a prediction flock there.
Sqala for a traditional meal
The Sqala café is a small haven in the old medina. Make the most of your stay to discover the shaded courtyard - where time seems to have stopped. The pretty blue fountain is a truly attractive feature. Typical Moroccan food is served there. Couscous, pastillas, pastries, mint tea, and more: there is something for everything in this 100% local restaurant.
Outing to the Villa des Arts
As an extremely dynamic cultural centre, the Villa des Arts opens its doors to the public for contemporary art exhibitions, events and shows. Shows, plays and concerts are organised in this Art Deco-style edifice. Its purpose is both to promote Moroccan culture and boost exchanges between Morocco and artists from all over.
Taktouka, the Moroccan salad
If you want to try something other than couscous and tagine that delight travellers’ taste buds, why not opt for taktouka? This Moroccan starter can also be served as a side to fish as a main course. Peppers, tomatoes, spices and herbs combine to create a colourful salad. Served lukewarm.
Pastillas, a brick pastry pie
This exquisite pie is one of the country’s most refined dishes. Traditionally made with chicken and almonds, Moroccan pastillas can be made with lots of different sweet and savoury fillings. The only ingredient that does not change is the brick pastry. Once cooked, the pie is golden and crunchy.
