Description

Explore the cultural, historical and economic center of Morocco on a sightseeing tour of Casablanca. Get an overview of the city and its most characteristic areas, including the maze-like streets of the medina. Go to the colorful Habous Quarter and more.

Itinerary

The morning begins with a visit to Casablanca’s sacred Jewish sites like the Synagogues, cemeteries, and monuments followed by the highlights of old Casablanca.  Casablanca has the largest Jewish community in Morocco and has numerous congregations, active communal institutions, and many highly recommended Kosher restaurants. Next up is a visit to the Mellah (Jewish quarter) with its temples and synagogues such as Bet-El, Em Habanim and Neve Shalom. The Jewish cemetery in the Mellah is open and quiet, with well-kept white stone markers in French, Hebrew, and Spanish. Once a year, Casablancans celebrate Hiloula, a prayer festival, at the tomb of the Jewish prophet Eliahou.

The next stop is a visit to the Museum of Moroccan Judaism exhibiting religious, ethnographic, and artistic objects that demonstrate the history, religion, traditions and daily lives of Jews in Morocco. Take some time to nourish yourself at a culinary pit-stop at the Kosher Cercle de L’Alliance, one of the most significant restaurants for the Casablancan Jewish community.

The last section of the tour covers the Hassan II Mosque, the 3rd largest Mosque in the world looking out to the Atlantic Ocean. Cap the day off with a visit to the Habous Market and explore local crafts and wood work traditions.
