Old Medina Of Casablanca, Casablanca Reviews
Good place for shopping during the day, however i advise you to end your trip before nightfall unless you're bada$$.
Souvenier shops expensive and low quality. Chinese turkish fake. Many cheaper alternatives in town center. Good for coffee and shisha))
Even if Casablanca may be dissapointing at a first glance. Forget the famous movie "Casablanca" with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. It was recorded in Hollywood. The economical capital of the kingdom of Morocco has a spirit. The old medina is one of the areas of Casablanca full of history and stories. Get inside the medina walking. Look at the buildings. Go to the square Ahmed El Bidaoui to have a look at the "Bab al Marsa" (The door of the Marine), the hotel central. Go to the "triangle of the monotheism" (The former spanish church Buenaventura, the synagog Eteddgui, the mosque Ould al Hamra). Have a look at the former house of the french general resident Hubert Lyautey. If by chance your journey in Casablanca is in April or May, you may be there during the days of the heritage of Casablanca organized by the association Casamémoire. Guides who are volonteers of the association and trained by it, make you visit for free among others areas of the town the old medina.
Very nice place to spend some hours. You can find some nice stuff here mostly souvenirs. But if you would like to by some fake branded some than this is the place go ahead.
The historic place in casablanca. Worth a visit
