First settled in the 7th century BC, the city has tons to offer history and archaeology buffs. Start in the Old Medina, the walled city on the north side of town, which is host to a modest market. From there, drive your rental car in Casablanca to the Shrine of Abderrahman, accessible at low tide. Non-Muslims are not allowed inside the actual shrine, but the surrounding beach and village is gorgeous and offers amazing views of the impressive site.
One of the biggest draws to the city is the King Hassan II Mosque, whose towering (tallest in the world) minaret was completed in the 1980s. Inside you'll find intricate tile work, impressive water features and space for 25,000 worshippers. In the courtyard, there is room for an additional 80,000 pilgrims, so you won't have to stress about personal space when you visit. Thoroughly modern technology like a retractable roof and heated floors contradict the grand, traditional design of the structure; it was modeled after the iconic architecture of the Alhambra and the Great Mosque of Cordoba.
