First on the way will be the Royal Palace, one of many of the King’s palaces, as the King has a palace in almost every city in case of a royal visit. You will see an outstanding open square at the front, a surplus of guards, and a grand exterior which anyone can enjoy.
After admiring the architecture of the Royal Palace of Casablanca, head to see the Cathedral Notre Dame de Lourdes, a beautiful building which as you will see has some European influences, was built in 1956 graced with spectacular stained glass windows.
Next stop will be the spectacular Hassan II Mosque, situated close to a shoreline. Some would say this is the landmark that dominates the city. Finished in 1993, it is the second largest mosque in the world, and the biggest one in Africa. Your private guide will share with you that the prayer hall can accommodate 25,000 worshippers while the courtyard can fit another 80,000.
At last enjoy the stroll through the Casablanca’s palm-dotted promenade - Ain Diab Corniche, where you will have a chance to ask your guide some questions or advises on your stay.
