Why Start Your Morocco Tour From Casablanca?

Why Start Your Morocco Tour From Casablanca?

Discover Morocco through an itinerary tour from Casablanca

Casablanca is the first city that comes to many people’s minds when you mention Morocco. Spanish for the White House, Casablanca is the biggest Moroccan city and the pumping heart of the Moroccan economy. Since Casablanca is the first economic center in Africa, it’s one of the most cosmopolitan cities on the continent, making it very tourist-friendly. 

 

Starting your Morocco tour from Casablanca will allow you to get to know Morocco from a whole different perspective. As opposed to other popular Moroccan cities like Marrakech and Fez, Casablanca is a coastal city with some decent beaches, which is also a plus if you’re into sunbathing on a beach. 

 

So, let’s find out why you should start your Morocco journey from Casablanca, known among the locals as “Casa”.

Tours from Casablanca

Tours and trips that starts from Casablanca to the desert and several cities

First, let’s Find Out More About Casablanca!

There’s a lot to know about Casablanca if you’re interested in the city. Casa has been one of the key locations for some of the most important events in history. And aside from its delightful weather, Casablanca is a lively city. While it might be too loud for your taste, it’s part of the aesthetic of Casablanca. 
Let’s find out more about the city, starting with history. 

History of Casablanca

The history of Casablanca is divided into three stages for the sake of convenience.

Stage I

The area we know now as Casablanca is believed to be inhabited ever since the 7th century BC. The original settlers were the Amazighs. In the old times, the coasts of Casablanca were a remarkable port for the Phoenicians and later the Romans. 
Leo Africanus (an Andalusian Diplomat and Geographer from the 15th century AD) describes the city of Anfa (the old name for Casa) as the most prosperous city on the Atlantic coasts, thanks to its fertile lands. 
Casablanca (Anfa back then) was a major settlement of the old Berber Independent state of Barghawata, which rose along with many other Berber states against the Ummayad Caliphate in the 8th century AD. 
Casablanca remained part of the Barghawata state until the Almoravid Dynasty conquered it in the 12th century AD, adding it to the Moroccan empire, which used to include Southern Spain (Andalusia) and Portugal. The Arabs mixed with the Amazighs during these times, making Casablanca one of the first areas in Morocco where the Moroccan Dialect developed, which is essentially a bastard language developed from mixing Arabic and Tamazight. 

Stage II 

In the 14th century, Anfa was one of the main ports of the Atlantic before a major revolt against the ruling dynasty (the Mirinids) that resulted in the port becoming a hub for outlaws and pirates. The Portuguese saw an opportunity in the chaos, which lead them to seize the port, destroying everything, and rebuilding it to their advantage. That’s when Casablanca got its contemporary name; the Portuguese built a white military fortress in the location that they named Casa Branca, i.e., the white house. 
After an earthquake destroyed the European settlements in the 18th century, Sultan Mohammed ben Abdallah (1756–1790) rebuilt the city, keeping its Portuguese name. In Arabic, it’s spelled ad-Dār al-Bayḍāʼ (الدار البيضاء), which is a direct translation to the Spanish name casa blanca. The city grew to be a strong port again with the support Spaniards. 

Stage III

By the end of the 19th century, Casablanca was one of the main trade centers between the Muslim world and Europe, with tea being transported from Britain, making its first introduction to Moroccan culture back in those times. 
By the dawn of the new century (20th century) the colonial eandevours of France succeeded in subjugating the city under their infleunce. 
Casablanca also played a major role in WWII for holding the famous Anfa Conferance where U.K. Prime Minister Winston Churchill and U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, along with other Allies generals discussed the progress of the war. 
In 1956 AD, Morocco regained its full independence, which made Casablanca go through many changes that led to where the city is today: one of the most important economic and cosmopolitan hubs of Africa. 

Geography of Casablanca

As mentioned before, Casablanca is located in Western Morocco on the coast of the Atlantic. Casablanca has some of the most fertile lands in Morocco, making agriculture a big thing in the region. 
Casablanca is home to more than 3 million people, and it covers an area of 220 km2 (80 sq mi). The industry sector is also a big thing in Casablanca, with most of Morocco’s industry being there. 

The climate of Casablanca

The climate of Casablanca is considered a hot-summer Mediterranean climate. Casablanca gets its cool breezes from the Canary currents of the Atlantic. A lot of Americans find the climate of Casablanca very similar to Los Angles. Casablanca is mostly sunny the whole year with an average of 72 days of rain.  
Starting your Morocco tour from Casablanca will prepare you for the climate in Morocco, which tends to be really hot in the non-costal cities. 

Culture of Casablanca

As you can deduce from the history of Casablanca, it’s a culturally diverse city. While it’s a cosmopolitan city, Islam is still the most dominant religion in Casa. You can tell that by looking at Hassan II mosque, which is one of the most culturally significant buildings in Morocco. 
Casablanca is a busy city that’s hard to keep up with. People from all sorts of life inhabit the city. And there’s a huge range of diversity when it comes to social and economic status. Casa can be very luxurious at times, but it can also be very down-to-earth and even seem poor in many places. 
Casa is also known for its rich art scene; it’s one of the best places to explore contemporary Moroccan art if that’s your thing. There are plenty of galleries, cultural centers, music shows, movies, and museums to explore in Casablanca before you head to other spots in Morocco. 

People of Casablanca

People from all walks of life inhabit Casablanca. People from all over the world live in Casa. Aside from the significant community of Sub-Saharan Africans who live in Casa, there’s a Jewish community, a Christian community, a Chinese community, and any type of community you can think of in Casablanca.

Festivals in Casablanca

Best Things to Do in Casablanca

Before you head to other exotic spots in Morocco, your tour from Casablanca should include at least a couple of fun activities. There’s plenty to go around when it comes to the best things to do in Casablanca. 

 

The list below includes some of the most iconic activities that you can do in Casablanca:

Explore Hassan II Mosque

Hassan II Mosque is the most iconic landmark of Casablanca. The first thing that you see whenever you type Casablanca on Google or YouTube is the soaring minaret of Hassan II mosque, which used to be the tallest minaret in the world before the Algerians decided to build the tallest one in 2019 out of spite. Or at least this is what many Moroccans believe. 

 

Hassan II Mosque is one of the very few mosques that allow non-Muslim visitors to enter it. Hassan II Mosque is your go-to if you want to see some magnificent architecture and mesmerizing (almost psychedelic) internal decoration. 

 

While it’s still relatively young, Hassan II Mosque holds a special spot in the hearts of Moroccans. When it was under construction in the late 80s, Moroccans from all over the Kingdom contributed their money to this building. People who worked on this project include French architects and some of the best artisans in the Kingdom. 

 

Located on the edge of the coast, Hassan II Mosque has the whole Atlantic as its background. The whole complex looks amazing with its fountains and arches, which is why cameras are constantly taking pictures there. 

 

When it’s Friday or a religious holiday, the mosque can hold up to 105,000 worshippers, making it one of the largest religious buildings in the entire world. 

Sunbathe on the Beach

Casablanca’s beaches are often sunny and pleasant to visit. If you don’t like the beaches within the city itself, there are plenty of nearby beaches that will fascinate you. 

 

If you travel to Mohamadia or El Jadida, you’ll be surprised by their great coasts. The beaches of Mohamadia are very popular among the locals for their golden sands and clean water. 

 

As for El Jadida, its ramparts are more of a highlight than the beaches. The ramparts of El Jadida mark an era of the Portuguese empire. The iconic cannons all over give a unique aesthetic to the place.  

 

Visit Rick’s Café

Cinephiles will appreciate this one like gold. If you’re into the cult classic 1942 movie Casablanca, then you’ll really want to have a drink at Rick’s Café and listen to some live piano music. 

 

The story of Rick’s Café is very peculiar because the movie was never shot in Casablanca. It’s actually a Hollywood movie. But that didn’t stop the American Kathy Kriger from recreating a faithful copy of the café in its supposedly original city. 

 

Rick’s café features a great menu and live music shows, making it a great spot to visit even if you didn’t watch the movie and have no associations with the place. 

Explore the Judeo-Christian Side of Casablanca

Whether it’s the great Cathedral of Sacré-Coeur or the Jewish Temple Beth El, Judeo-Christian culture also has a significant trace in Casablanca. 

 

The Roman Catholic church used to have its influence go as far as Casablanca in the old days. As for during the period of colonialism, nearly half of the population of Casablanca used to be European Christians, which explains why there many traces of Christianity in Casa. 

 

As for Judaism, Jewish history in Casablanca goes way back to the pre-Christian era. Nearly 500,000 Jews used to live in Morocco before Israel was founded. The Museum of Moroccan Judaism in Casablanca holds many secrets about the history of the Jewish people in Morocco, who used to be a vital community in the whole Kingdom. 

Have Fun in the Nightclubs and Lounges

If you’re not into all that history and culture stuff, and all you want to do is to party like it’s 1969, Casablanca is your hotspot. All of the amazing clubs in the Corniche of Ain Diab should provide all the fun you need. If you’re more into the quiet mood, you can try the lounges. 

 

The nightlife of Casablanca is super vibrant! It should provide the perfect opportunity for you to make new friends in Morocco. You’ll find many young people there who have “party” as their middle name. You can also get access to some of the things we shouldn’t be talking about if you have the right connections. 

Explore the Museums 

If you’re into museums, you’ll be delighted to explore the ones in Casablanca, especially if you’re into Art Deco, which we’ll return to later. 

 

Some of the most notable museums in Casa include: 

Admire the Art Deco Buildings

Downtown Casablanca boasts many unique architectures that return to the Art Deco style, which was developed in the West in the first half of the 20th century. Many Art Deco buildings in Casablanca were built during the French occupation. 

 

If you admire the art style of modernity, you’ll appreciate the Art Deco aesthetic of Casablanca. 

Visit the Old Town (Medina)

The Old Town of Casablanca, known locally as the medina, is the perfect place to get a very close look at the more traditional and less luxurious part of Morocco. You’ll find common Moroccans dwelling in the market. 

The medina is also where you want to go if you want to do some traditional shopping in Casablanca. 

 When you start your tour from Casablanca, that allow you to explore this great city ever.

Tours from Marrakech

Tours and trips that starts from Marrakech to the desert and several cities

the starting point

Morocco private desert tours usually begin by gathering people in a big, imperial city like Casablanca, Marrakech or Fez. During the time you’re going to spend there, you might want to discover what these interesting cities have to offer.

For example all of these three examples that we mentioned are cities that are known for their old Medinas(old town). We’re talking like 12 centuries old buildings such as the case with Fez. These old Mdinas are records from ancient history, the thing that makes them a world cultural heritage. The imperial cities are also known for their modern lifestyle. For example even the design of Casablanca is meant to resemble the European cities of the early 20th century.

Our point is even if you’re sole purpose is only to visit the desert, spending some time discovering more about the big Moroccan cities is really a must do.

Suggested tour:  4 days marrakech to fes

 

Few stops here and there.

As we already have mentioned, Morocco is very interesting due to the wide range of variety in its weather and geography. One moment you’re in the snow, few hours later you’re in the desert. Therefore, a trip to the desert, has to stop first at some interesting places. For example if the Morocco private desert tour starts from a coastal city, like Casablanca, it will most probably visit some interesting cities like Meknes. It will also stop for a while in the Atlas Mountains, and few other places. As you get closer and closer to the desert dunes that are near Merzouga, you will also stop by some gorges and valleys. Not to mention all the small villages and towns here and there, that all have their special and interesting details.

However, when we’re talking about the desert, our ultimate stop, and probably the most important for the theme of desert, is Merzouga. This small yet rich village is where you’re heading out when you’re considering a Morocco private desert tour.

One final important stop in a typical Morocco private desert tour is the Kasbah that the UNESCO considers a world cultural heritage, Kasbat Ait Benhaddo. This wonderful fortress that has a very beautiful architecture is a must-visit, it enforces the desert ambience.

Activities of the desert.

This paragraph is probably the most exciting part of our article. However, you might find that what you already know about the Moroccan Desert is sufficient knowledge, to help you to predict what sort of activities you can do in the desert. But just to establish an image in your imagination, the Moroccan Desert is truly an amazing place in all sense of the word. It has a rich environment, lifeforms, and a relatively wide range of geographies, that accompanied with a richness of culture and an authenticity of desert lifestyle. Our point is that it’s not only the desert, but also the people who inhabit the desert.

There you can see beautiful sunsets and sunrises while also trying to spot some forms of wildlife, both of these activities are pure products of nature. However, activities that are related to the desert culture are for example listening to drum music and eating desert cuisine.

These are but only few examples of how nature and culture are beautifully combined to give this place its magical ambience which has these exotic overtones, that always seem to capture the curiosity of people.

Words cannot express the fully what this place is, description sometimes fails to capture the core of such a place. However, with the help of a Morocco private desert tour, such an experience could be possible in the best of ways.

Our point essentially could be summed up as: reading about a camel is not as half fun as riding one.
