Silversea Luxury Cruises A Casablanca

Casablanca

Casablanca is Morocco's most modern city, and various groups of people call it home: hardworking Berbers who came north from the Souss Valley to make their fortune; older folks raised on French customs during the protectorate; devoted Muslims; wealthy business executives in the prestigious neighborhoods of California and Anfa; new and poor arrivals from the countryside, living in conspicuous shantytowns; and thousands of others from all over the kingdom who have found jobs here. There is also a fair-size expat population, including many French people. View more

The city has its own stock exchange, and working hours tend to transcend the relaxed pace kept by the rest of Morocco.True to its name—casa blanca in Spanish (white house), which, in turn, is Dar el-Beida in Arabic—Casablanca is a conglomeration of white buildings. The present city, known colloquially as "Casa" or "El Beida," was only founded in 1912. It lacks the abundance of ancient monuments that resonate in Morocco's other major cities; however, there are still some landmarks, including the famous Hassan II Mosque.

Proceed for lunch at the famous Ricks Café, the mythical saloon from the 1942 film, 'Casablanca'. Set in an old, courtyard-style mansion built against the walls of the Old Medina, this restaurant and piano bar is filled with architectural and decorative details reminiscent of the film.

Azemmour Village

From the entrance of Azemmour you will see the stunning panoramic view of the whitewashed buildings clustered on the banks of the Oum Rabiaa River.


Morocco's Portuguese Town El Jadida

Next, continue to Morocco's Portuguese town - 'Mazagan' - also known as El Jadida meaning 'new one' to the Arabs. This new name was first used just after the departure of the Portuguese. Explore El Jadida on foot accompanied by your tour guide and experience one of the first settlements created in Africa by Portuguese explorers on their way to India. The most interesting part of El Jadida is the Old Portuguese quarter and the underground cistern, an immense square hall supported by 25 columns and lit only by a circular opening in the roof. The Portuguese built it originally as an arsenal but in the 16th century, they transformed it into a cistern. A mark on the wall records the water level at that time. It was discovered in 1916 by chance, having been sealed off for hundreds of years. Orson Wells used it in his film 'Othello' and also many other directors have filmed in this dramatic area.
