"Casablanca" Casablanca by solopes

The biggest town in Morocco was also the least interesting of all, at last until the building of Hassan II mosque. That building is now a must see. Opened in 1993, it misses the weight of history, but shows how powerful leaders still can carry their country richness for self-promoting monuments.
It’s a marvel of architecture, looking big and being bigger than it looks, favoured by its location entering the sea. I didn’t visit the interior, which, for non muslins is only accessible in organized visits, I couldn’t access.

City Hall

Near the medina we visited City Hall, the most interesting of the official buildings, showing the typical Moresque architecture.
