Casablanca: Hassan II Mosque Guided Visit with Hotel Pickup

1. Casablanca: Hassan II Mosque Guided Visit with Hotel Pickup

Discover one of the top destinations in Casablanca, the Hassan II Mosque, the largest mosque in Africa and the third-largest in the world. Its minaret is the world's second tallest at 688 feet. Completed in 1993, it was designed by Michel Pinseau and built by Bouygues.  Equipped with a 18-mile laser directed toward Mecca, the stately mosque was created in response to the Royal will to provide the Casablanca metropolis with a great spiritual monument so as to increase the presence of faith, piety, and tolerance within the urban financial center of Morocco. Located partly on the sea over nine hectares, the Hassan II Mosque is one of the most beautiful religious buildings in the world, a true masterpiece of Arab-Muslim architecture. Wander through the massive building accompanied by an expert, local guide, picking up insights along the way into the mosque's historical and religious significance. 

Casablanca: Private City Tour

2. Casablanca: Private City Tour

Begin your half-day tour with pickup from central Casablanca hotels at 8:30 AM. Meet your multilingual chauffeur, and sit back and relax in your private air-conditioned car or minivan, depending on your group size. Pass by the Old Medina of Casablanca and United Nations Square on your way to Hassan II Mosque. Spend 1 hour discovering the mosque before heading to Rick's Café, a legendary place thanks to two cinematic icons: Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart. From there, make your way to the Corniche and spend 15 minutes exploring the elegant buildings of the Anfa and Maarif neighborhoods, the grand avenues, and the architecture that blends modern and Moorish styles. Pass by Ain Diab and see the main public beach for Casablanca's 6.5 million population. Next, stop at the Square of Mohammed V, the pigeon-filled heart of the city, before visiting the Notre Dame de Lourdes, an amazing cathedral with stained glass walls around the church. Look out for the grotto which has a statue of Mary with flowers and candles. After admiring the cathedral, head to Habbous Square near the Royal Palace of Casablanca to discover this district in the city's old quarter, which was built during the French colonial period. Finally, stop at Boulevard Mohammed V to mingle with the local Moroccan crowds.
