Discover one of the Muslim world’s most important mosques
Constructed less than 25 years ago, the modern-built Hassan II Mosque overlooking the ocean is the second-largest place of Muslim worship anywhere in the world. Gratefully for visitors it is also one of the few open to non-Muslims, meaning everyone can come and appreciate its splendour, regardless of their faith. In fact, the mosque’s beautiful interior can house up to 25,000 people at any one time, while the vast courtyard can accommodate a further 80,000.
Moroccan cuisine is known for its couscous, tagines, mint tea, and other delectable dishes. Visitors to Casablanca may immerse themselves in the city’s rich culinary culture by taking a guided food tour offered by Moroccan Food Tour, a well-known local organization that offers a variety of themed excursions and experiences across the city. During your trip, you’ll visit some of the city’s most well-known foodie hotspots, including as the Central Market and the juice bars along Boulevard Mohamed V, as well as have gourmet teas/coffees at a fine dining restaurant. But maybe the most memorable experience is selecting fish from a local market and then watching it cooked in a modest diner. Your skilled tour guide will provide information along the route.
