Casablanca and Rabat
Fans of the film "Casablanca" can actually find a version of
Rick's Place, known as the Bar Casablanca, in the Hyatt Hotel.
The city's real landmark is the Hassan II Mosque, which the
late King completed 1993. This is the world's largest mosque
outside of Mecca. The single huge minaret, built in traditional
Moroccan style, is the tallest in the world. This mosque is
open to visitors who take guided tours.
Rabat is Morocco's capital. Here you can see
fishing boats and the walls of Rabat's Kasbah (fort).
The King of Morocco has many palaces. Here is the
main gate to his Rabat Palace. Again this is classical
Moroccan architecture, which we also see in Spain, left
behind by the people Europeans called Moors.
The Mausoleum of Mohammed V, whose heirs are
still kings, is another example of this style.
