Official Buildings, Casablanca: 4 reviews and 4 photos

by matcrazy1

Prefecture Mechouar de Casablanca was located near Mosque Mohammed V. Well, "mechouar" means a fortified palace with a parade ground.

The building with a very large Arabic gate looks impressive and is guarded by an armed soldier. You can make him a photo if he allows you - simply ask him preferrably in Arab or French language haha. He allowed me to take him alone a photo although I didn't know Arab language (neither French).

By the way, French language is not obligatory at Moroccan schools since early 1990s but almost all children choose just this language. I wonder why? :-)
