Casablanca Holidays Overview

 

Casablanca is located on the Atlantic coast of Morocco, and compared to other Moroccan cities it is a modern westernised metropolis. Casablanca grew massively during the twentieth century, following the declaration of the French Protectorate in 1912. The French began an ambitious building project, expanding the small medina area, and adding wide boulevards, public parks, and plenty of Hispano-Moorish architecture.
 
There are still aspects of traditional Moroccan life to be seen, such as the historic medina, north of the city and just south of the port, and the awe inspiring Hassan II Mosque. There are fewer women wearing the veil than in other parts of Morocco, however, and men and women mix fairly freely together. The feeling is more that of a Southern European city than an African town.
 
In 2003 Casablanca hit the headlines due to a series of co-ordinated suicide bombings. Five bombs went off around the city, killing forty people, and the locations were chosen because they were areas frequented by European or Jewish people. Although the bombers were all young Moroccans from the Casablanca area, the overwhelming majority of Moroccan Muslims condemned the action, reinforcing the notion that Morocco is one of the world’s most tolerant Islamic societies.
