The Old District

Even though Casablanca is a modern city it also has an old district. It's a nice area with tiny houses and a market. However, it is inhabited by a lot of people and is rather crowded, so watch your valuables.


Badii Palace

The Badii Palace has been considered one of the wonders of the Muslim world for a long time. It was the regent Ahmed El Mansour Dahbi who ordered the construction of the palace in 986. Sixteen years later a beauty of a building was built.

Moreover, the old district also contains many other attractions in the shape of mosques and museums.



Fès is an old, impressive city. It was built back in the 8th century and is surrounded by more history and mystique than any other city or area in Morocco. For instance, visit the Royal Palace or Karaouine University which is older than Oxford University.

The area around Agadir

Several villages on the Mediterranean coast near Agadir are worth a visit. Try for instance Asilah, the fishing village and experience Hercules' caves at Cape Spartel. The town Tetuan is also worth a visit as it provides a view over the Mediterranean Sea from its position on a mountain slope.

Tour Hassan Mosque

The Tour Hassan is the most famed building in Rabat. The building was begun by Yacoub al-Mansour but an earth quake brought construction to a halt in 1755 and for this reason the mosque is incomplete today.
