Originally modelled after Marseilles when the French landed Casablanca in 1907, Casablanca is the most European of Morocco’s cities and is known as a huge metropolis where modernity and tradition coexist. The city’s French colonial legacy is seen in its downtown architecture, a blend of the old Moorish style and European art deco.
