Casablanca – the very name conjures up romantic images of a French colonial past, not to mention the wartime classic starring Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart. This port city standing by the Atlantic coastline is also Morocco’s largest and most populous. Set up by the French as a key commercial port in Morocco, it’s old French legacy is reflected in its handsome Mauresque buildings. Casablanca’s iconic architectural style, a fusion of traditional Moroccan and French-colonial design, is best seen in its downtown area. The bustling Central Market and the old Mahakma building, which was an old Muslim law court as well as the Pasha of Casablanca’s reception hall, are definitely worth a visit for a true flavor of the city. For a taste of Casablanca’s sophisticated nightlife, a stroll down the Quartier Habous and the beachside suburb of Ain Diab are always on a traveler’s list.
