Overview of Old Medina of Casablanca

A small square in the Old Medina of Casablanca

The old Medina is built on old buildings, many of which date back to the 19th century. These buildings are a reminder of the city’s past, and the architecture is evidence of the city’s bright history. Unlike Marrakech, where most of Medina’s buildings are painted terracotta, Casablanca is dominated by white and various shades of blue, pink and purple, reminiscent of its proximity to the ocean.

Old Medina Streets of Casablanca

As in all the medina cities of Morocco, the Old Medina has many markets where you can find everything from traditional Moroccan handmade products to fine souvenirs, and in small cafes you can always try local cuisine.


Strolling through the Medina in Casablanca, be very careful - it is not a tourist destination, and foreigners here are very sceptical. Here, residents you do not like when someone takes pictures of people, shops or just streets. In addition, you should watch for wallets and bags. On dead-end streets you may not be allowed. Residents can follow you to stop photo or video shooting. And especially do not look out the windows of houses. — Gidza
