CHURCH OF THE SACRED HEART
The French architect Paul Tournon, who also designed several churches in France, presents an interesting experience in the decorative use of poured concrete with the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.
This imposing cathedral is built in a neo-Gothic style with Art Deco and Mauresque influences.
Windows that pierce the upper parts of the cathedral remind one of decoration for mosques. The external buttresses located along the roof have pronounced right angles instead of the usual curves.
The cathedral is sometimes left open to visits and offers a magnificent view of Casablanca and the Atlantic Ocean from the top of the towers. It is being renovated to become an arts centre.
