Best Things to do in Casablanca Morocco

From wandering the medina to admiring the art and architecture, these are the best things to do in Casablanca.

We’ll show you why this often-overlooked city deserves its own spot on your Morocco itinerary.

Visit the Hassan II Mosque

The third-largest mosque outside of Mecca, the Hassan II Mosque took seven years to build and can accommodate 25,000 worshippers inside and an additional 80,000 outside.

Mahkama Du Pacha

Mahkama Du Pacha was initially a pasha’s residence but is now a government building (hence the guided tour), but it’s a fine example of Moorish architecture.

Get Lost In the Casablanca Medina

You can wander the maze of tiny laneways in the Medina and not be hassled to “buy, buy, buy,” and unlike Fez, very few will try to hustle you, apart from the occasional rug salesman.

Walk The Streets-Street Art & Casablanca Architecture

A style known as Mauresque architecture. A walk around Central Casablanca is an activity in its own right and one of the best free things to do in Casablanca.

Moroccan Art Deco

French architects enthusiastically embraced the Art Deco movement in the early 20th century, leaving Casablanca with a distinctly unique style.

Lunch at Marche Central

Much smaller and less hectic than the Old Medina, you will find flowers, cheese and deli meats, fresh honey, fish, and an array of quaint butcher shops in the small marketplace.
