Casablanca Desert tours
The economic and financial capital of the country, Casablanca is a stopover between two historical cities. The vestiges are rare even if the Phoenicians have occupied the place since the 6th century BC. The small medina has preserved its Muslim character and its numerous stores. When you leave the ramparts, discover the modern city which contrasts with the colonial architecture of the 30s. Towards the cornice, the “highest religious building in the world” stands out: the Hassan II mosque inaugurated in 1993 and designed by the French architect Michel Pineau. The monument, built on the Atlantic Ocean, rises about ten meters above the sea. Its minaret of 200 m is equipped with a laser. It indicates the direction of Mecca. The decoration remains uncluttered despite the richness of the materials: 10,000 m² of zelliges, 67,000 m² of plaster, 53,000 m² of wood. The building can accommodate up to 150,000 people. Do not miss it, it is open to all.
