Searching for cheap flights to Casablanca from the USA? Look no further than Globehunters!
Ever since the Hollywood hit film of the same name was screened back in 1942, Casablanca in North-West Morocco has enjoyed a massive increase in popularity over the years and is certainly somewhere you’ll never forget. As the thriving economical heartbeat of the country, Casablanca is a forward-thinking, vibrant city that welcomes thousands of tourists from all corners of the globe each year. Packed to the rafters with Moorish tradition and strong Islamic and Spanish influences, you’ll discover hundreds of beautiful craft markets, breath-taking architecture and warm hospitality. Not to mention its year round sunshine and warm temperatures of course!
Large, cosmopolitan and densely populated, Casablanca, or “Casa” as the locals call it, is also home to the most dominant religious monument in the Arab world after Mecca. Referred to as the Hassan II Mosque, it’s an essential tour to have under your belt once you’re there. Memorable and deeply atmospheric, your expert guide will give you an in-depth understanding of its history and the stories it has to tell.
You’ll explore the ancient medina, still partially enclosed by ramparts, the very first district of Casablanca. The Art Deco quarter to the east is also fantastic for exploring, with its unique architecture and notable contrast to its neighbouring medina. And when it’s time for some refreshment, why try the deliciously sweet mint tea which is extremely popular among the locals.
When it comes to food even the fussiest eaters will be spoilt for choice. Moroccan cooking is warm, fruity and spicy with many varieties of herbs and citrus fruits being staple additives. Tagine with couscous and other popular meaty dishes are the order of the day and of course there’s an abundance of fish available too. Sardines, anchovies, mackerel and prawns can all be bought fresh from the markets straight off the boat. Delicious!
