Casablanca, Morocco

Wild beaches, imposing mosques, a thriving city centre and amazing architecture - you cannot get enough of Casablanca!

Book a ticket to the most important harbour in Morocco: Casablanca, meaning 'white house'. The city honours its name as the streets are mostly flanked with traditional white houses. Are you interested in the rituals of a mosque? Visit the Hassan II mosque near the harbour. It is the only mosque in Morocco which non-Muslims may enter. And ... it is the second large mosque in the world! Another amazing building is the large non-Islamic Cathédrale du Sacré Coeur, built in beautiful neo-Gothic style. The cathedral lies in Casablanca’s largest park - the perfect place to relax during your citytrip in Casablanca!
