Morocco is a Muslim country and you can feel the importance of this religion to its people when you visit the Hassan II Mosque, the largest in the country, and the third-largest mosque in the world. It was built to mark the 60th birthday of the former king, and is decorated inside with incredible tile work.
When visiting Casablanca, be sure to spend time in a hammam, a Moroccan-style sauna. Hammam Ziani is one of the more upscale varieties in the city, where you can indulge in a luxuriously warm bath and have a range of treatments, including a body scrub and massage.
The old medina in the city’s heart is a traditional walled town and features a colonial-period clock tower. Many shops and street stalls selling hookahs, tagines, traditional pottery, and leather goods are located here. As well as being a great place to find traditional crafts and souvenirs, there’s also a wide array of street food to sample. You can find delicacies from aubergine sandwiches and freshly grilled flatbreads to fresh juices and grilled corn.
