The medina of Casablanca was rebuilt in 1770 after an earthquake left it in ruins.
The visit of the medina of Casablanca starts at the Place des Nations Unies. There is no standard itinerary to visit it, you just have to wander through its narrow streets and let your steps guide you.
It is a real labyrinth where you can get lost very quickly, but don't worry, you will always find your way back.
Of course there is no typical route to visit the medina of Casablanca, but there are monuments not to be missed such as the Great Mosque located about 400 meters north-east of the Place des Nations-Unies, as well as the Kouba Sidi Smara located at walking distance from the mosque.
Continue on your way and at about 500 meters you will find the sanctuary of Sidi el Kairouani.
The visit of the medina of Casablanca must be done imperatively during the day, the evening it is not very sure, especially for the tourists.
Vigilance is required even during the day, avoid displaying your valuables, especially if you venture into the small, little frequented streets.
