Overview of Casablanca Clock Tower

View of the Clock Tower, Coupole Zevaco and Bab Marrakech Gate

The Clock Tower was originally built in 1910 by the French colonial government as a symbol of their authority over the city. The tower was 30 metres high and was the tallest structure in Casablanca.

The original tower was demolished in 1948 due to an emergency condition. The new tower is a complete copy of it, located in the same place on the top of one of the towers of the rampart near the main entrance to the Old Medina of Casablanca - the gate of Bab Marrakech.

The Casablanca Clock Tower

The Tower has four dials, each facing in its own direction. The clock is actuated by a mechanism that was imported from France and is still in use.

Now the Clock Tower is a symbol of the history and culture of the city. It is a reminder of the French colonial rule and the struggle of the people of Casablanca. It is also a reminder of the resilience of the city and its ability to overcome adversity.
