Old city

Casablanca, Morocco
Casablanca, Morocco

The old city of Casablanca is conveniently located — just off the main town square from where all avenues radiate, and near the sea. But as you enter, you will see that it is not all that old after all, that the houses here often have a form and size which would have made them natural elements in the "new" parts of many other Moroccan cities.
But still, it is very nice, even if it is surprisingly small. The best parts of the old city is made up of shopping areas, where all types of products are sold, and you should not either miss out on the less visited quarters — the areas where people live — where colours and shapes and curves brings you far away from elegance of downtown Casablanca.
